band tools not enabled after loading solution with bands

When a solution with bands is opened, the delete bands and disable bands tools do not appear as expected.

This issue affects both the selection interface in main 20211028-3935ec25b6-win_x86 and the new interface in 20211116-fa67a1b31e-win_x86-devprev. It's been mentioned in #bugs-and-feedback previously.

The steps to recreate are:

1. start the client, open a puzzle
2. make one or more bands
3. save the solution
4. reset the puzzle
5. load the saved solution
6. delete bands and disable bands are not active

In main, the icons for delete bands and disable bands are not shown when the problem occurs. In devprev, the icons are there, but the hover help indicates there are no bands present.

The recipe functions correctly report that bands exist.

Several actions clear the issue, such as pulling, adding a band, shaking or wiggling, or running a recipe. Once cleared, the problem does not return until the puzzle is reset or the client is restarted.

On main, the issue also occurs after a client restart if the previous pose had bands.

On devprev, the issue does not happen on a restart that restores a previous banded solution. The problem still happens on devprev if you start with an unbanded solution and load a banded solution.

The hotfix updates (and the main release) should have fixed this issue. (Thanks for the bug report.)
