one of the big differences between gimp-1.2 and this new thing is the
tool options dialog.  i had this same problem a while ago.  double click
on either the rectangular or elliptical tools and you will see an "auto
shrink selection" option that is the default behavior.

i suspect they put it there so we can still find some of the nice
gimp-1.2 users out that did not complain much and just used it.

i hope i understood the problem alright ...
