History panel clicks are changing the "show overlay" setting

When working with masks in Lightroom, I frequently use the history panel to quickly compare before and after.

 

Unfortunately, this workflow was somewhat broken with LRC 11 because now clicks on the history panel may change the "show overflow" option in the mask panel.

 

For example:

  1. add a brush mask
  2. enable "show overlay"
  3. paint with the brush to cover the desired area of the photo
  4. uncheck "show overlay"
  5. change a slider (e.g. contrast)
  6. click in the history panel to the step before changing contrast

 

Expected behavior:

 - photo is visible with settings before the contrast change and "show overlay" off

 

Actual behavior:

 - photo is visible with settings before contrast change, but "show overlay is "on"

 - notably, switching back-and-forth between the history steps before and after the contrast change also changes the "show overlay" setting back and forth

 

I'm on Mac OS Catalina and LRC 11.0.

Actually, I just found the "Automatically Toggle Overlay" setting in the overlay options. Unchecking this seems to help.
So I guess this is working as intended.
