Bugg-report: Strange auto-select behaviour with masked objects

1. Make a shape. 
2. Paste a bitmap image over the shape and alt-click the layer so it gets masked by the shape. 
3. Paste another bitmap over first bitmap and again alt-click this layer too so it gets masked by the shape. 

You now have two bitmaps masked by a shape.
Auto-selecting this selects the top bitmap layer (as it should be).

4. Now hide the fist bitmap you pasted by clicking the eye. 

Auto-selecting this now selects the shape and not the visible top bitmap. 

Is there a reason for this or a bug?
