The current crop tool always crops the layers to the selected area, so you
cannot fine-tune the position afterwards - previously there was the option
of cropping only the canvas, and the layers still stretched beyond the
canvas. This is what I always do so that I can fine-tune the position
later on, and since there is no interactive way of doing it in Gimp
anymore, it becomes a painful trial-and-error cycle (as I described in my
Martin Nordholts provided very quickly a one-liner patch for the issue,
but there came a lot of discussion about how the option should be visible
