I expect this was done to prevent the case where someone:
1. chooses a graphic tool from the Tools palette
2. clicks to start dragging out the graphic
3. accidentally double-clicks instead and ends the graphic, resulting
in an unintentionally-tiny graphic
It also lets you click once with a graphic tool to create a
default-size graphic at that spot.
Perhaps newGraphic could test what tool is chosen, and change the
size only if the tool is "graphic".
