double click on the move tool.  you can move selections, layers or paths
(there are buttons at the top of the tool option dialog.  also other
ways to make move tool behave; "Pick a layer or guide to Move" allows
you to move whatever non-alpha layer you touch and "Move Current Layer"
will move only the layer highlighted in the layers dialog.

the only thing i ever wanted from move tool is a way to say "put the
upper left corner at these numerical coordinates"

the tooloptions menu is dockable and should have been docked underneath
the toolbox in the default gimp set up (the first time you opened gimp2

lots of ways to control these powerful tools.
