DataTable and Select All Checkboxes

I have a h:datatable that has a checkbox in each row.
In the footer of the datatable, there is a button that "approves" all the selected rows (ie, it calls an action in the managed bean). If I select rows manually by checking off each checkbox, and then click "approve" - the action is fired everything is good.

Then I put in a "select all" checkbox, that selected all the showing checkboxes on the page. What the problem is, is that when I click approve now, no action is fired.

Any idea what is going on? I know this is a JSF forum - but here is the JS code:

I agree. Here's the link:
