Greetings again. ^_^
Thank you very much for your replies.
Hmm... It's odd that I hadn't noticed it doing that previously. Perhaps my
copy had a glitch? :/
I'm pretty confident that I remember the operation changing from scaling up
with pressure to scaling down - but my memory may be faulty. It's also
possible that I had been using the paintbrush previously, but, while it's not
impossible, this seems rather unlikely to me. Ah well.
I take it then that there's no way to reverse this?

This behaviour is intentional, and mimics real airbrush behaviour.
AFAIK it cannot be configured.

This didn't happen at some point, it has always been like that. When you
move an airbrush away from the surface, it will create a larger spot.
Admittedly the airbrush tool isn't very realistic, but at least for the
size it tries to behave like a real airbrush tool.
