measure tool use gc+mercator?

The measure tool starts out with great circle distance which I want, then after the first waypoint is placed, it switches that back to mercator distance. This makes what kind of sense?

Sean's comment has been added to this Tracker item

because it is related.

People should vote for it. VOTES=0 right now
