Hi Elke -
Same results with ellipse selection, too. I just selected an
ellipse, cut it out using Ctl-X and anchored it back into a new
layer. Presto - the outline of the selection shows. Looks to me
like someone got confused about whether the selection outline
was in or out of the selection itself, and concluded that it was
part of the selection for a cut, but not for a paste. Oops!
You might try a small value of feathering as a short-term
workaround. And maybe a bug report.
