Robert Guetzkow (rjg) triaged this task as Low priority.

Seems like the toolbar's active tool drawing isn't refreshed properly. I'm marking this as low priority as this disappears as soon as the mouse is moved and the actual functionality works as intended. The issue is purely in the visual display.

I agree that this is low priority
