Keep background path selection in continued trail/new segment

I usually download a gpx file to use as orientation for my bike tours. After a recording starts, I add the imported track as background path. Upon pause, continuation or recording of a new segment, this path disappears, forcing me to re-select a background path. I would consider it a more intuitive behavior if the selected background path would stay selected, being shown by default when a trail is continued (in any way, shape or form).

Thanks for considering!
