The XY-window rightclick menu is NOT an "edit-current-selection" feature. It's 
a "create-new-entity" feature. The old function was to use the position of the 
current selection to create a new entity and DELETE the selection. The new 
function is to use the position of the click to create a new entity without 
deleting the selection. Your problem arises from a misconception of the 
original function.
To change the class of an entity without deleting, use the entity inspector and 
edit the classname key directly. There is a flaw in radiant's entity system 
that means changing the classname may not update radiant's visualisation for 
the entity. If the entity visual rep. doesn't change to the colour of the new 
entity class, clone it and delete the original (the clone process refreshes the 
eclass of the entity).
Changing from a fixedsize class to a non-fixedsize or vice-versa is not handled
