Is it just me or does it drive you crazy also when Photoshop changes
the layer selected when you go back to a step in the history? I can
see why they would want to link the layer selected to the history state
but I'd prefer it unlinked since it makes fixing mistakes much easier.
Anybody know how to turn this off?

No, it isn't just you - it has the same effect on me :-(

I don't know of any way to turn it off, but Edit/Undo doesn't have this
effect, so unless you have created the new state for the History Brush, it
is sometimes better to get into the habit of using Undo to correct a mistake
rather than going back a single history step. It's not really a solution
though.
