If that is the case, I have noticed another flaw. When I am working
in the grayscale image mode, and I use the paintbrush to try and draw
a color on the image, it comes out in gray!! This is clearly wrong
behavior. You would not expect a tool to have two different modes of
operation depending on the image you are drawing on! Obviously, all
images should be color.
