Closing question as off-topic has no options to move to another site (main SO)

I've noticed this a lot recently, that when there are already close votes on a question, it sometimes doesn't give me the option to go further into the off-topic menu and select a destination for migration (similar to this very old question). For example:

Selected off-topic as close reason

This question won't let me go further into the dialog. I've selected the off-topic reason and nothing happened. I realize that with 2 votes as off-topic now, it's no longer eligible for automatic migration, but it also did this when there was only 1 vote for off-topic. In this case, it would still be possible for a super-majority automatic migration.

Out of curiosity, I tried selecting off-topic on a random question which had no close votes, and the migration destinations appeared as expected.

Is this a new feature that was implemented? A bug in the close dialog? What's going on here?

You're very active on meta. How did you miss this? – Mysticial Nov 16 '12 at 20:42
@Mysticial: I have no idea, where was it? o.o – animuson Nov 16 '12 at 20:43

Bleh... Anna beat me to it. – Mysticial Nov 16 '12 at 20:44
On that note, we could make this an FAQ-proposed? – Mysticial Nov 16 '12 at 20:47
Ah. I see. October 18 was during the timeframe I was working 60 hours/week at the Election Commission. :/ I didn't spend much time on SE during that period. Look at the things you miss in such a short period of time! – animuson Nov 16 '12 at 20:47
@Mysticial: can't we just edit the flagging / migration faq? Not that I can find one.. – Martijn Pieters Nov 16 '12 at 20:50
@Martijn: do it. – Shog9 Nov 16 '12 at 20:51
@Shog9: My better half is going to do something dreadful to me if I start that now.. tomorrow maybe. – Martijn Pieters Nov 16 '12 at 20:52

You cannot select a destination when the question is over 60 days old: Disable migration for questions older than 60 days.
