I guess it works as designed. First you erased some of the "active" part of an already inverted (but this doesnt matter here) radial filter. When inverting the filter again, the active part is no longer inside, but now outside, and the brush strokes do nothing on the inside, but only leave the "stubs" on the outside.

It is inconvenient, but logical. Inverting the mask of a radial filter makes it something completely different, in the same way as "flipping" a graduated filter upside-down.

Appears that the brushstrokes are on a separate layer which doesn't get inverted at all, just the radial mask. It's a pity, it would be much better if the radial tool got rastered when affected by brush and the inversion worked like in photoshop (would like to see that for brush tool too).

I can't get the radial mask to do anything. Seems to be disabled for me on a Mac Yosemite 10.10.3
