Bug Description

Using Pinta 0.7 on Windows XP.
1. Print-screen and paste image with <CTRL>+<Alt>+V.
2. Click on Text object from Tools palette.
3. Click on canvas and start typing.
4. Press <Backspace> and whole image becomes black (primary color).
or press <Delete> and whole image becomes transparent.

It looks like <Ctrl>+<Alt>+V after pasting it keeps image in selected mode.
1a) Click on Deselect All button from toolbar to deselect image.

This feature "of image staying selected" is not needed in "Paste into new Image" and it should be removed.

But on the other site it is very important to keep this feature if only "Paste" <Ctrl>+V is selected.

Tested again in Pinta 1.1 on Windows XP sp3 and problem persists.

Confirmed with Pinta 1.2 (daily build) on Ubuntu 11.10.

It looks like the <Backspace> and <Delete> keys are triggering the Fill Selection / Delete Selection actions instead of editing the text, since there is still an active selection.

When fixing this bug be careful, because there are three kind of pastes:
1. Paste <Ctrl>+V (when pasting into existing image "Deselect All" action should NOT be done automatically, because if it is then it is no option to use "Move Selected Pixels" object)
2. Paste Into New Layer <Shift>+<Ctrl>+V (not a problem)
3. Paste Into New Image <Alt>+<Ctrl>+V (when pasting into new image there will be no action to move pixels because it can't really be moved to some other place because it already occupies 100% of canvas)

After using "Paste Into New Image", the selection is now automatically removed. The behaviour wasn't changed for any of the other paste actions.
