Currently, if you select a tool (the tool to draw rectangles), as soon as you
use it, the cursor goes back to the default state. Thus, if you want to draw 2
rectangles, you need to:

- select the rectangle tool
- draw the first rectangle
- select again the rectangle tool
- draw the second rectangle

that's annoying.

What is used in many graphical applications (inkscape, illustrator...) is that
you keep the tool selected as long as you don't select another tool or press the
escape key. I think this behaviour would be better.

Please try to doubleclick the tool you want to use. Then you will keep it until
you select something other.
