Well, it's hard to remember, exactly.  I recall having a few issues with the
lasso tool.  And by that, I don't mean that the tool did not work as it was
supposed to, it was me as a user that probably constricted myself.

I recall firstly being frustrated by the fact that if I had to enlarge my image
big enough that it went beyond the edge of the window, that the window would not
automatically scroll when I had to go beyond the edge, as it does in Paintshop
Pro, which I was used to when I found GIMP.  I didn't think you could grab a
scroll bar, move the window, then continue your selection.  I would zoom the
image til it all fit, then select as best I could.

Also, I must not have been grabbing the first selection point properly, because
it wouldn't close.  I found myself trying to make my selections so that I could
double click to close it, and the straight line would complete my selection area
as best it could.

They seem so silly now, but were quite frustrating at the time.
