Nowadays (since update 1029fixPainter), the brush-size in force when
the user exits from a painting session will be the brush-size
selected when the user undertakes his next painting session. And
likewise, the "currently selected color" is now remembered and
restored from painting session to painting session.
If you are making an event-recording that involves use of painting,
this means that you can no longer know what the brush-size and
selected-color are going to be when the paint palette comes up on
replay. To assure intended brush-size and color-choice in playback,
you should explicitly click on the desired brush-size and color, even
if on your screen they are already set correctly, during any event
recording of a painting session.
