not exactly. On the toolbar there are 2 functions. There is the main 
icon to be able to create a polygon (ie, activate the mouse), and the 
other to set propeties. When you set properties from the toolbar, you 
have to go back and click the icon (if you have changed the number of 
sides its shape should change on the toolbar) to activate the mouse (or 
press P)

I've just checked this out in 1.4.1, 1.4.2svn and the toolbar is working Ok.
