Active keyframe changes with active FCurve on deselect of keyframe

Worked: never, new feature introduced in rB983ad4210b9e

Short description of error
In the graph editor, deselecting a keyframe activates that keyframe's curve. As a result, that curve's active keyframe becomes the overall active keyframe for that editor.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • Open the attached blend file
  • The last X-rotation keyframe is active
  • Deselect the middle Y-rotation keyframe, by shift-clicking on it

Expected behaviour: the active key remains the same.

Observed behaviour: the last keyframe of the Y-rotation curve is now active.

Possible solutions

I see two solutions here:

  • Keep track of the active keyframe separate from the active FCurve. That would even allow for different active keyframes per graph editor (not sure if that's desirable though).
  • On de-selecting a keyframe, don't change what is active FCurve. That way both the active FCurve and the active keyframe are determined by selection only, and should stay in sync.
