LO-Draw does reposition the layer tab under cursor to the active layer, when clicked (e.g with SHIFT to hide/show some layer / elements in current drawing).
This is confusing and annoying as in cases when there is a large number of layers, not all and especially the active one not visible in view and if clicking on a layer to show/hide a recurrent on/off is not possible as LO-Draw does reposition the tabs view to show the active one under cursor and not as expected the just clicked one.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a reasonable number of layers so that not all are visible
2.Move the active layer by scrolling in the layer view out of view
3. CLICK Twice on a layer in visible area to hide/show a layer
LO-Draw does reposition the tabs view to show the active one under cursor
LO-Draw should NOT reposition the tabs view and stick with the clicked/current one. In other LO Tools (e.g. Calc this is the current behavior)

Step 3. is misleading: you should *not* double-click, but Shift-/Ctrl-click!
Already repro with 4.4.7 and 3.3.0
Let me clarify, I did not mean in #3 a double-click but two distinct single-click operations in a short period of time (say ~1..2 secs) to toggle the visibilty of all elements on the clicked layer to analyze their positions on the current drawing. This is my usual use-case where the problem is really annoying.
However as suggested, a single Shift-/ or CTRL-Click on a visible layer while the active one is outside the view already sufficiently shows the issue.
