Save the image as png, quit gimp and restart. :D

go to channels dialogue, make an empty channel, and do,
channel to selection. (and then go to layers and select
a layer in the image)

use rectangle tool to marquee round the whole image in
"subtract from selection" mode, and press Enter

single-click with rectangle tool, outside the image (or ellipse tool
probably, but not freehand tool)

several others that other people suggested, I generally do
