I don't know the sourcecode and therefore cannot be sure about this, but here's what I've concluded from observation: Text in GIMP saves it's properties in two different places: One set of properties that is the standard for the entire text layer and then the modified parameters for every letter you change. Unfortunately, by using the floating menu you can only change the modified parameters, even if you have the entire text selected. So when you delete the entire text and start entering a new one (that's also what happens if you selected the entire text and start tipping), it uses the layer-wide standard properties. To change those, you have to change them in the tool properties of the text tool instead of the floating menu. Maybe it'd be worth a bug report if there isn't one, requesting to alter the layer-wide properties when the entire text is selected.

Hi, i switched gimp 2.6 to 2.8 and new text tool behaves strangely, as i 
remember in gimp 2.6 when i try to change text content with selecting old text 
and pasting new text i could use same text size and same font with my old text 
without doing anything but now in the gim 2.8 whenever i try to change content 
of a text layer i need to choose again font and text size from toolbox options, 
but why do i have to do this, i have a text placed on my image with a certain 
font and certain font size and i just want to alter my text conten not the size 
of text or font , it changes automatically to back text size and font whatever 
i used last  time in another work.

summary: i want to change my text content without setting my font and font size 
properties, i want to use my text layers old properties, please give the 
feature back...
