Well, I had, but I was making assumptions about the causes of any delays.

Sure, I would be grateful for any help in making a script to do this work. 
I don't have gimp-python, but I suppose I could install it.  As I
mentioned in another post, I think the script will be very simple to
write, provided one already knows script-fu (or python-fu):

Assuming there are two images open and a selection is active in the active

1. Store the top left coordinates (x,y) of the selection.
2. Copy the selection.
3. Switch to the second image (or: pop up a dialog asking the user to
select the destination image).
4. Paste.
5. Move the selection to (x,y).
6. Anchor the selection.
