Description

darktable-2.2.5-2.fc26.x86_64, Fedora 26, Gnome 3 over X11 session, NVidia videocard with proprietary driver installed from RpmFusion.

Darktable user manual says "All changes are stored automatically when you switch images or go from one darktable view to another", but it is not always true -- I have noticed wrong and reproducible (in my conditions) Darktable behaviour:

1. Select an image.
2. Press "d" to activate "Darkroom" view. -- The history stack contains two entries: "0 - original", "1 - orientation".
3. Expand "Crop and rotate" panel. -- Cropping mode is activated: Grid appeared, if mouse pointer is nearby image border, pointer changes its shape, etc. The history stack does not have "crop and rotate" entry on the top though, and "on" icon is grayed out.
4. Move cropping frame. -- "crop and rotate" is switched on; "crop and rotate" appears on the top of the history stack.
5. Press "l" to activate "Lighttable" view. -- "Lighttable" view is activated, but the image is NOT cropped.
6. Press "d" to activate "Darkroom" view again. -- "Darkroom" view is activated, "crop and rotate" is switched on and is on top of the history stack but image is NOT cropped.

To have cropping actually applied I have to do some more actions, e. g. collapse "crop and rotate" panel (it creates one more "crop and rotate" entry on the history stack).
