Ok, here Edit Mask is automatically enabled, but that's a minor point.

Here this does that too.

Sorry, but I cannot reproduce this. If I paint with white, the bottom layer is 
part is hidden, and the top layer is shown. This is very weird :-/

Do note that there's Layer -> Mask -> Show mask. Enabling this option will 
show the actual value of the entire mask in black & white. *Then* you should 
see black when you paint black on the mask, etc. Otherwise, this should not 
happen :-/ Do you happen to have a .kra Krita file for this? (Not that it'd 
get fixed in 1.6 if it's a bug, since no .4, but it might be good to check 
for this when we finalize the masks in 2.0)
