The point is changing the canvas size, but leaving the layers uncropped. 
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 
original post).

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 
from the UI.  I hope that this will come to some conclusion, instead of 
forgetting that feature altogether.
