We just get an indefinite spinner, and a JS error.
Turns out the issue is menu toggle checks the Drupal.settings['adaptivetheme'][activeTheme] structure, but this isn't added to the modal AJAX request so fails with an undefined variable error.
Attached patch just bails if this structure is not set, which seems reasonable since there aren't actually any menus on the media modal "edit" dialog.
