Yes, the behavior has changed during the 2.3.x development.  Clicking
without modifiers will now always start a new selection.  With 2.2 and
previous versions, some users complained about the different behavior
of the selection tools if you were clicking inside or outside an
existing selection.

Yes, there is:
 - Alt+Ctrl moves the selected pixels.
 - Alt+Shift moves a copy of the selected pixels.

You forgot to check the status bar messages while using the selection
tools.  They suggest to try Alt, and when you do that you will see
the explanation about what you can do.

The docs will eventually be updated for 2.4, and then it will be
easier to find this information.
