Bug Description

Start footprint editor
Go to preferences and change the default line width for a layer
Go to that layer and begin drawing a polyline
Note that the thickness is not the updated thickness from preferences
Quit footprint editor
Start footprint editor
Now the line width is read from the preferences and set correctly for the layer

It's actually only fixed for the life of the tool. If you switch to the circle and back to the polyline tool then it will update.
