Further to #3908, consider the situation where an open QGIS Project has multiple layers and one of them is a non-queryable WMS layer.

If the identify tool is selected and the current layer then becomes the non-queryable WMS layer, the identify tool is greyed-out. So far so good.

However, if the user then clicks on a feature, the identify tool fires off anyway. In the case of the WMS server, it just returns an error anyway (with perhaps a confusing error message to the user).

An optimisation would be to trap the error locally within QGIS. Perhaps each map tool could check to see if it's still enabled in the tool bar before it fires?
