Colorpicker in parameters

I wanted to check with everyone;
When I try to change the color parameter of an existing layer I like to use the eydropper under HSV, however when I try to change the color of the same layer again it picks a color from a lower layer or somewhere else. It seems I have only one attempt to grab a color, if I miss restarting synfig seems to be the only way to try again. Am I missing something or is this a bug? Running 1.0.2 on Linux.
