Hi:

I added to my toolbar a dropdown menu that allows me to choose the active build configuration. I got this dropdown from the View->Toolbars->customize window - screenshot attached.

Now I occasionally have an issue where I use this drop-down to change the active build configuration - but the active build configuration is not really changed. What I mean is that when I look in the menus: Build->Set Active configuration, what I see there does not match what I see in the drop down where I recently thought I changed the active build config to something else. Furthermore when I do trigger a build, it is using the setting in the Build->Set Active configuration and not the setting in the drop down that I have in the toolbar.

This is an intermittent issue, not sure how to consistently reproduce. I can tell you that my existing project has 14 different build configurations in it - and I frequently switch between the very first one and the very last one. I've seen the issue when I switch from first to last build config and vice versa. Most of the time this does not happen, but I have observed it 2x and it is kind of annoying.

More info - in the 2x where I saw this problem, it was in Linux SE. I have the same build configurations in windows, but I did not notice the issue there. In windows I use the 2nd to last build config instead of the last one, not sure if that makes a difference or not.
