Closed tickets can be logged against but are not listed

If I turn on the allow to log time on closed tickets and jira allows this, it turns out the ticket can be logged against, but the ticket does not appear in the drop down list.

This is misleading. Is there a way to resolve this? Or alternatively make it clearer that the free text ticket name is valid and is being logged against even though it is not in the drop down list.

Additionally can the value after actual selection from the ticket dropdown be made to display all of what was in the dropdown text list rather than just the ticket ID.
