Usually, when tools start misbehaving, this is due to issues with the preference files that store tools, and other, settings.

To recreate this settings, resetting everything to default, simply hold down the Ctrl+Alt+Shift keys (Command+Option+Shift on Mac) when launching the Editor. If you get the timing right (you have to be kinda fast), you will be prompted to delete the settings file. Do this and see if the Smart Brush starts behaving correctly again.
