Nope, the problem here is that we are using a mechanism that is
actually meant for selecting a layer once you deleted the last
channel. The MRU list of layers doesn't really make sense to use
when we are dealing with layers only, since the obviously expected
behavior when deleting a list/tree element is to select a
neighboring element. Everybody please calm down, I plan to
change things here anyway, the refactoring of the image's item
trees is not over yet.

stay tuned,
