While brushing suspicious gravel if you switch to another item in your hotbar mid brushing, the item you switch to will be deleted and replaced with another brush with the same durability as the one you were using.
Steps to Reproduce:
- Use a brush on suspicious gravel
- Before the artifact is removed, switch to another item in your hotbar
The item you switched to will be lost and replaced with another brush identical to the one you were using originally.
Brushing should be stopped, the artifact should slowly go back into the sus block, and the item you switched to should remain in hotbar and be seleted.
