Photoshop: Select and Mask bug (reproducible everytime)

This has been bugging me(no pun intended) for some time and I've been trying to reproduce it but finally can. Steps to produce:

1. Go to Select and Mask space after making a selection
2. Hit the R key (Refine Edge)
3. Make a stroke(preferably long stroke so it has more thinking to do) over an edge to refine then immediately press W(quick selection tool)
4. Press the space bar to activate the hand tool and move the image to a new area

On my machine(Windows 10), the tool reverts back to R(refine edge), instead of remaining on W(quick selection) as selected in action 3 above. 

It's hard to tell from the below vid but whenever you see the quick selection tool selected, it's because I've hit W immediately after refining a bit. Then you'd see the tool revert to refine edge when the hand tool appears and I've moved to a new area. The same happens in reverse(start off with the quick selection, hit refine immediately after using quick select, then activate the hand tool).

Hi Jerry,

I can't repeat offhand but I'm presently on my Mac. I will try on Windows in the AM.
