Can't reproduce the problem on my own GIMP 2.8.0 - was I reading the steps correctly?

I tried:
1 - Open a convenient image, add layer mask (full opacity).
2 - Switch to the layer mask and paint away. (works as expected)
3 - Add a new layer (transparent) and paint some strokes
4 - Add a layer mask (full opacity) to the second layer.
5 - Switch to the layer mask and paint away. (still works as expected)

Remember that adding a new layer mask doesn't automatically switch to it for editing - you must do that yourself.  From what you describe, it sounds like you're actually editing the first layer mask (the flower layer) instead of the second (the white stroke layer).
