You are right, that was an invalid generalisation. I was thinking of the 'New
where the 'fill' option tends to get in the way.
(If i leave that option to a fixed value -- like a prefs item -- there's no

just hit enter to create the new layer. If i, however, do change this value,
remember this the next time i create a new layer.)
