I've tried the same steps myself. If it is a normal layer then everything's
fine - however if it is still floating then the select tools produce this
cropping-like behavior. Is that deliberate?
In the meantime, Keith, try the "Paste As > New Layer" command. Or maybe use
the actual Crop tool (not Rectangle tool) with "Current layer only" enabled -
works on floating layers too.
Numbers may not lie, but neither do they tell the whole truth.
