Thanks for your feedback, after reading the replies it seems that consistency 
is important and was not achieved by the first proposal.

So to sum up the discussion, here are revised suggestions, much like what 
Fabien suggested, with no discrimination single/multiple selection:

1) Default mode
You need to click the Apply button to apply changes. A message box asks for 
confirmation to apply when the selection changes.
The message box has a "Always apply changes" checkbox.

2) "Always apply" mode
Changes are automatically applied.
The setting can be changed from the message box in (1), or from the popup menu 
on the "More" button.

Question: Should the apply button be shown in mode (2)?

Pros and Cons:
This solution makes clear for new users when changes are applied, and saves 
them from inadvertent changes.
Power users can disable the confirmation. In this mode you are not saved from 
inadvertent changes in multiple selection, but for the sake of consistency 
that's it.

Anyone who cannot agree with such a solution?
