what do you mean by "behaves strange" ? The Bucket Fill behaviour is intended 
and I don't see why you categorize it as a bug. If no selection is active,
the tool tries to follow the metaphore of filling color into the picture
that flows until it is stopped by some picture detail. I think this is the 
common way how Bucket Fill tools behave. It behaves differently if a selection
is active since when a selection is made, the user will expect that the 
entire selection gets filled. I must admit that this is not obvious.

yes obviously.

does it have to? And if so, how do you propose it should?

yes we could optimize the threshold=255 case but I doubt it's worth the

a lot of people already find it difficult that there's no tool for Pattern
filling but I'm open for suggestions.
