yes, i do need to change them - but why nothing is saved - even i hit
the"save button" in the toolsettings-dialog? i think the functionality
to change and save is wanted - but does not work - it worked not in
1.3.8 - and it does not work in 1.3.10 -  or maybe i'm unable to get it
working? if i start gimp from console all it says while clicking the
save button is "Save clicked" - maybe this functionality is'nt included

how about this: if i create a layer, there is no size, because the layer
contains nothing, if i put pixels in, gimp can always get the outer
pixels which mark the max x-size/y-size of my layer, so gimp would
always "know" the size of the layer and nobody should ever need think
about"layer sizes". (except for shrinking etc.)

about resizing a layer i'd like to say it's not really handy to
enter the dimension-values x/y by hand - there should be a visual tool,
maybe similar to the crop-tool to do layer-resizing and stuff.
