There are different cases.

1. I use fixed ratio. If the crop window leaves image borders, the ratio 
is violated.
2. I use fixed crop window dimensions. When touching the edge of an 
image the mouse is still moving, the crop window isn't crossing the edge 
and the preset window size is violated.

I would prefer to have this feature switchable with a checkbox (and I'll 
set it not to cross edges at least most of the time). I'll ground it. 
When one is processing images for further printing, cropping is framing. 
And the result _should_ have defined ratio. If one is moving crop window 
within an image, looking if it has crossed the borders and violated the 
resulting ratio is a waste of time and work.
