Polygon tool broken

The polygon tool is not working correctly. Draw a polygon by clicking multiple points. The tool always waits for another point and won't terminate. Even switching tools does not fix state - the polygon tool stays active and waits for input on the current poly.

Curtis, assigning to you as you wrote the tool implementation and you're involved in some related code now. Assign back if you want this on my plate.

Another part of this ticket must be to make publish status messages matching those of ImageJ1. See ticket #827 for details.

To clarify the description above, you *can* terminate the polygon tool by double clicking. But it is a bug that switching to another ImageJ tool does not terminate the polygon.

Another issue (arguably) is that the polygon tool doubles as the freehand tool, if you click and drag rather than merely clicking points. It is perhaps surprising that you get a smooth spline-fitted polygon in that case.
