Stop automatically switching to bow

It's been awhile since I've played, so I'm sure this is a simple, stupid thing I've overlooked, but any time I try to attack a monster, it switches my weapon to the bow automatically. I can go into my equipment, manually re-equip my sword, attack, and bam, bow again... it's driving me nuts. I'm using the latest ManaPlus client, and I've gone through all of the input options to see if maybe it's a button I'm hitting, but I can't find anything that seems to be related to this. Any ideas?

Press G key.
Also look to yellow bar http://manaplus.org/yellowbar

Oki, I think it goes this way:
- Activate your yellow bar if it isn't already: Right click on any bar on the top left of the screen (e.g. HP bar) and "Show Status Bar"
- Turn it yellow (enable it) if it isn't already by pressing "8" on your Numpad (you also disable it like that)
- Press "G" until the appropriate letter (the 5th) in the yellow bar says "D" (default attack)

Hope this helps.... meeeh 4144 was faster *throws some C++ code at 4144*

To be honest i love the yellowbar, maybe it should/could be locked as default but keep the functionality for "powerusers".
