No, locktext is true. All list fields must have locktext set to true.
Otherwise you don't get mouse messages in the field.

No, not on my system (10.3.9). If multipleHilites is false, and the
field is a list field, multiple selections are not possible. That makes
sense, since it's the reason for the multipleHilites property -- to
specify how many lines can be selected. You can override this, of
course, by scripting.
I just noticed that even with multipleHilites set to true, Cmd-A does
not select all the lines in a list field. So I don't think that behavior
is supported, at least, not on 10.3.9.
