On Windows 7 64 bit. Problem occurs on QGIS 2.6, 2.8.2, and 2.10.1 all installed on the same machine. I don't have another machine to test.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Use any shapefile with multiple features. Attached shapefile (testshapefile.shp) is example.
2. Select one feature.
3. Open Vector->Geoprocessing Tools->Buffer.
4. Select testshapefile.shp as the input vector layer, checkmark "Use only selected features", select radio "buffer distance field", select field with buffer distances (field name buffdist in the attached example), checkmark "Dissolve buffer results", choose output shapefile name, checkmark "Add result to canvas". Press ok.
5. Nothing happens, and the buffer dialog remains open, Ok button is greyed out. Waited 10 minutes, still nothing. If I hit the cancel button, the output shapefile is produced, but it is empty of features.
