"Stick tool to active image" will happen always since the active image IS
the one you are drawing to. I seriously suggest you forget this thing and
use the keyboard shortcuts to toggle between tools OR use an intuos pen to
switch the tools. You can even use one pen - the pen and the eraser tip are
different devices - you can assign 2 different tools to them - not just a
tool and an eraser.

Well you'd need to "activate" the "Sticky" tool somehow anyway. Why not just
press a key to switch the tool for real? I think this is like shooting a
mosquito with a nuclear blast..
