I use GIMP 1.2.3 over FreeBSD 5.0-STABLE. "Paste as New" DOES copies all "visible" 
layers and  pastes it in a new image file. I use the ported (.bz2) installer from the 
FreeBSD repository.

There is another quicker option if you want to select visible layers, if I got it 
right that it's what you want, though. You can use the option "Copy Visible" at the 
bottom of the right-click menu and paste it on a new image file.

** I do see bugs in the "Paste as New" option, though.
