Cut previs of Loop Cut visible after changing to Knife with a hotkey

Short description of error
When I change the tool from Loop Cut to Knife with a hotkey, I can still see the previs of the Loop Cut.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Click Loop Cut tool.
  2. Hover over the mesh to see the yellow previs
  3. Press K on the keyboard to change the tool to Knife

Event Timeline

Technically that may not even be a bug, though it is rather amusing. The K key activates the Knife modal operator, not the Knife tool, therefore the active tool remains Loop Cut. Since Knife is modal it consumes mouse events, so the active tool's state remains the same. It's a clash of the "new" active tool system and the "old" modal operator system.
