that gives hope, it's just that i can't reproduce...

The active options reads "Pick a layer or guide", but when i start dragging,
the freshly picked layer gets moved.

The Preferences option given by Sven determines wether a picked and or moved 
will be activated after the operation but doesn't change anything else.
At least that's the behaviour i'm used too (and just checked).

now i'm really astonished,
