In GIMP 2.8.10 on Windows, the ellipse select tool shows a rectangle around the area, as well as the ellipse to be selected. It can also be adjusted before using the selection, so you don't have to get it exactly right first go.

Which version are you using? 2.8.10 is rather old now, but it would seem a bit of a backwards step to have removed those features in newer versions.


You are of course completely right. But with the ellipse showing your brain is tricked into making the ellipse match, not the frame :)
