Excuse me? I'm not sure what you are referring to.
The point is that it is impossible to perform a non-destructive crop in
Gimp 2.6 (other than using Canvas Size as a workaround, which is extremely
non-visual). I often do additional editing after the preliminary crop,
and want to be able to fine-tune the positioning afterwards. This should
be made possible.
Thank you Martin for the quick patch. I re-built the Ubuntu packages with
the patch and it works great! However, I agree with others that the
option name should be changed or some other option used for this.
(Personally I might be in favour of all crops except "Current layer only"
being non-destructive, if a separate option is deemed unnecessary.)
