Focus issue, keyboard shortcuts don't work

Recommended Posts

Steps to reproduce:

* Click into the canvas. Make sure key shortcuts work, e.g. B for brush, M for marquee, etc.
  (Keys may be different depending on your prefs.)
* In the layers panel, add two pixel layers. Keystrokes B and M still work.
* Click the layer that's not currently selected, to make it the active one. B and M still work.
* Click the layer that's already selected (not the name, not the checkbox, just the background).

Expected behaviour:

* B and M should still work.

What I see instead:

* The click somehow removed the focus from the canvas. B and M no longer work. On macOS you hear the system sound that
  indicates the keystroke wasn't recognized.
* After clicking one of the tools from the tool panel, B and M still do not work.
* To bring the focus back into the canvas, you have to click into the canvas. But watch out, don't mess up your drawing.
* This bug is very annoying and can make an otherwise good workflow very cumbersome.
