Once I was used to the behaviour I found it quite useful. If I need to
delete a number of consecutive layers, I select the top or bottom one
then use the down or up arrow to walk through the layers I want
deleted then click the delete button repeatedly.
However, even knowing it and leveraging it, I still get caught when I
move from one layer to another far away in the stack to delete then
find the active layer is way back in the stack.
Regarding the comments in the bug report, I can think of at least one
time deleting a layer currently leaves no layer selected...when there
is only one layer. Not near my machine to check what happens if you
select a channel as a drawable then select a layer and delete it.
Does it set the channel active?
