this is not a bug
you are just using the wrong command

use P L
place line for mech layers

when you hit TAB a different dialog will pop and it won't swap you back
to a copper layer

P T is for electrical tracks

if you think about it, it is not bad
also the last used width will stick for each type which is nice
