showing the difference between toolbar and sidebar

The toolbars - in all versions of the user interface, where applicable - behave wrongly as regards the choice of "pattern:
Main Problem:
Draw a rectangle or else, choose Format -> Area -> Pattern, choose some pattern (or use the sidebar). The pattern is applied correctly to the form. But then look at the toolbar: the selection in area type is "Bitmap", while the pattern is still displayed. If you use the dropdown list, it is shown in conjunction with the bitmaps. Selecting pattern again yields filling the object with the default colour. The toolbar still shows "pattern" whereas the dialog and the sidebar correctly show "none".
Minor Problem: most probably having the same reason; selecting pattern as area type, no patterns are displayed.

The bug is still there in

I found it in, but not in In this last mentioned version there still is no area style "pattern", this appears in, which probably was not added completely.
There is a similar bug report: #123804. In Julien Nabet points to a possible reason, which supports the assumption of an incomplete amendment.

@Heiko, anyone from the UX team that might be interested in fixing this issue ?

Not sure about the meta blocker... Adding also Jim as he did some work around this topic.
