Does anyone else see this? Is there a reason why this happens or is it a bug? (Photoshop CS5.1 on OS X 10.7.2, not sure if this happens in previous Photoshop or OS X versions.)
Steps to reproduce:
1. Click on 'Add a layer style' button in the Layers palette and pick anything.
2. When releasing the mouse button, watch the 'Hand Tool' icon.
In seemingly random fashion, it does any of these two things:
A (happens most of the time): It flickers for about ¼ sec (gets selected, then de-selected, just before the Layer Style dialog opens).
B. For as long as the Layer Style dialog is open, the Hand Tool stays 'selected'. But when exiting the dialog you get back whatever tool you were using before.
