    Sampling color using "Option" key while Brush tool is selected (CS6)

      I am used to "Option" clicking on a color, while using the Brush tool, to set the foreground color. In CS6, it is updating the background color instead, even though the "Info" panel clearly says "Click to choose new foreground color" when I hold down the Option key. What setting am I missing?

       

      The foreground color is the active color in the color swatches.

       

      Manually selecting the Eyedropper tool and option-clicking, updates the foreground color. Simply clicking, updates the background color
