it would have helped a lot if you had changed the subject of your mail,
since apparently you have changed the topic completely. Also your mail
should have better been send to the gimp-user list. Please do that next
time you have questions on using GIMP.

Have a look at the Layers dialog. I guess you have a Floating Selection,
probably as a result from using the Scale tool.

Are you sure you are using GIMP 2.4? We changed the paint tool behavior
to not auto-scroll when the brush tip hits the edge of the view. What
you are describing sounds like the behavior of GIMP 2.2.
