There used to be a bug, which allowed the selection of multiple items when the ItemsPanelTemplate property of RadTileList was modified. However, it was fixed in one of our internal builds. Could you please test your application with our latest one and let us know how it goes ?
On a side note, you can download the latest internal build from your account or wait for our upcoming Service Pack, which will be available by the end of this week.
