Gimp isn't evolving so fast that tutorials writtten for 2.2 or 2.4
can't be used on 2.6 with a grain of salt...

As long as your pasted layer is a "floating selection" you won't be
able to move anything else. You have to anchor it (ie, make it part of
the active layer when you pasted) or create anew layer from it before
you can move the other layers again.
