Uninstalling inactive themes deactivates the active theme

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open a Vault
  2. Install two community themes and set one of them to active.
  3. Uninstall the inactive theme.
  4. Notice that Obsidian reverts to the default theme and you have to reactive the theme that you didn’t install.

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide?

Yes. This happens in a Sandbox Vault.

Expected result

I would not expect uninstalling an inactive theme to affect the status of the active theme.

Actual result

Uninstalling an inactive theme sets the theme to Obsidian’s default theme.

Additional information

Ultimately a minor bug since it’s easy to reactivate the theme – but it was unexpected.
