Bug Description

The tool is still active and works normally,
it's just a ui problem.

If one clicks on a button once,
then it becomes pressed as one would expect,

but if one clicks on the same button again,
then it becomes released and it looks like none of the tools are active.

In v0.48.4 r9939 the buttons stay pressed,
no matter how many times one clicks on them.

Tested with r12945
on linux mint 15 32bit

Based on tests with archived builds:
- not reproduced with rev <= 12931,
- reproduced with rev >= 12933,
this GUI regression seems to have been introduced with the changes in revision 12932:

Except regressions regarding Bug #1268778, I don't see any. It should be quite easy to test (play with the shortcuts and the icons) and not risky, but that report is the proof there's always a place for a bug anywhere...
