Suddenly copy changes brush
I've been using Gimp 2.8.14p2 (January 9, 2015) for at least the last three months on a Mac running El Capitan. A few weeks ago it started doing something new, though I gather it's what's supposed to happen.

Until a week or so ago, I could copy and paste without changing the brush in any of the tool options. Now when I copy and paste something I have to change the brush from "clipboard" back to the circular shape I had before.

When I copy something from an image, I want to paste it, not change the brush. I want to keep the brush I had.

What changed, and how can I change it back?
No OSX users around to answer.

In linux Gimp 2.8.22 a copied selection correctly appears as the clipboard brush but not automatically selected. No way I can see to replicate the effect.

Try, Edit -> Preferences -> Tool Options and click on Reset Saved Tool Options to Default values Restart Gimp, see if it makes any difference.
