How to avoid Brush selection from changing selected tool

Hi,

Recently, I noticed in Photoshop that when changing the cursor-brush I am currently using, the tool is almost always changed for another tool, directly interrupting or confusing my work. This behaviour is so alien to me and so disturbing that I stopped using cursor-brushes alltogether, a functionnality that I was happily using before. This is such an annoyance for me, as I feel this is forcing a behaviour to me and prevent me from working  intelligently, naturally and creatively. For example, I was often using a cursor-brush with random spots (instead of the circle one) combined with the stamp tool, a combination that no longer seems to be possible at all.

 

Is there a way to revert back to the previous brushes selection system? Or to clearly tell Photoshop to NEVER change the current tool? And did somebody requested this "legacy" option from Adobe? It really seems that every change Adobe is doing these days are so disrupting that they always required them to add a "legacy" option, but whatever, I don't care, I just need to be able to use my tools in an effective and intelligent way, and they are clearly not delivering.

Can you elaborate, maybe share screenshots. What do you mean by cursor-brush? What happens when you select the brush tool, is it changing to a different tool? Screenshots with your selected brush and a screenshot of what is changing would help.
