GIMP Driving me nuts [Undo changes the selected tool]
Hello. I got an issue...

Whenever i hit undo the tool i previously picked is swapped to something else and i literally hate that, it's a major distraction, is there any way to prevent it from happening?

I may not be perfect, but parts of me are excellent

Uhm, it's not that, it changes into some selection movement tool. (Couldn't figure out it's name in english before)

Excuse my obscure screen resolution*, but what tool i got doesn't matter, also at times when i switch between GIMP and other programs that's running, eg. WinAmp, the tool is also changed

Before hitting undo a few times:    
After hitting undo a few times:    

It happens more frequently if i used my graphics tablet before/while clicking undo


*My true screen size is 2304x1024 pixels (1024x768+1280x1024)

Oh, I looked at the input devices, and my mouse isn't listed, but the tablet is listed as both a keybaord and as a mouse wheel.


Why isn't there an option in Preferences that enables/disables that "multi-tool" thing ?


Disabling the tablet would defeat it's purpose, so that won't do...
