Short description of error
Switching the slots in the image editor for the render result (hotkey "j") can show a blank image, even if there is an image available in that slot.
Selecting the render layer in the dropdown menu brings it back.
This is irritating, especially since the image is shown right after rendering.
This only happens if the compositor is disabled.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Load .
  2. Press F12 to render. The image editor comes up.
  3. Press "j" to switch to switch the slot.
  4. Press F12 to render again.
  5. Press "j" to switch back to the previous slot. It now appears blank.
