It is possible to set the admin theme just for views in the views settings page: admin/structure/views/settings. "Custom admin theme for the Views UI".

This does not fix the bootstrap theme problem, but it does solve my problem where I want to use the bootstrap theme for content administration actions.

Use the administration theme when editing or creating content. 

This enables me to provide people submitting content with the same experience as viewing.
