Selections won't go outside canvas, so you can start the selection on
the canvas border to get it from 0,0. Just enlarge the image window to
see some of the canvas margin and start the selection in the upper left
conner margin.

In 1.3 there is a neat grid system to help you with perfect-positioning
selections. In 1.2 you can try using the guidelines.

enhancement bug #121294.
