The project page says

Back reference definitions are taken from the "Content types that can be referenced" option in the global settings section of node reference fields configured to use the autocomplete widget.

but I have a back-reference, that seems to works fine, to a node reference field configured to use the select list widget.

Can I rely on this working in successive versions or would it be safer to stop using back-references like this?

hmm... this is just my bad. It should simply say "Back reference definitions are taken from the "Content types that can be referenced" option in the global settings section of node reference fields."

No matter which kind of widget you use in this case. What we need is the list of referenceable node types, which is an option that depends on the node reference field, regardless of the widget it is configured to use.

I'll update the docs to fix this. Thanks, and sorry for the headaches.
