Don't focus on the word 'click'. This has nothing to do with pointer
focus. It's simply that the menu applies to the last image you did
something with. And when you read "did something with", think
"clicked on" and not "moved mouse over". Changing a tool or tool
option does not change what image you're working on. The GIMP already
does something similar with the layers dialog.
