When you use the text modification tool and then try to delete something from another layer it doesn't let you do it until you do something on that layer
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a new file
2. make some strokes on the layer
3. create a text layer write something
4. modify the text
5. select all
6. pick the normal layer
7. try to erase it with the delete key
8. Nothing happens
1. make a stroke in the layer
2. now it works normally
it should delete what is on the layer
The issue isn't that you need to make a stroke, but that on activating the paint layer, the vector object manipulation tool is still active, and it doesn't forward the delete action correctly. It's enough to press 'b' to activate the brush tool. Still, it's confusing and annoying.

Pushed by rempt into branch 'calligra/2.9'.
On switching to a vector layer, if the current tool doesn't work on
vector layers, switch to the interaction tool, and on switching to a
pixel layer, if the current tool doesn't work on a pixel layer, switch
to the freehand brush.
It might be possible to do this more neatly by having different shape
activation id's, but that's a huge can of worms.
