Yeah, do not use 'apply layer mask' at least not straight away. Using GEGL and
on canvas display, there are several operations that need a 'enter' to fix them.
Guessing something like this, black background, white **active** layer mask,
white-to-black radial gradient. Drawn in the canvas looks like this. Layer mask
will remain blank
as this: https://i.imgur.com/dkElA36.jpg
When satisfied hit the enter key to confirm the operation, that fixes the
gradient into the layer mask.
