I'm lost, I hope I haven't lost you. There's plenty of ways how to do that in 1.1.X gimp. The fastest is probably to duplicate the layer (right click on a thumbnail in the layer window), selelect all (image>select>all) and clear (ctrl+k). The other way is to create a new layer and use a cropping tool with "current layer only" setting enabled. The cropping tool is great for resizing layers (yes it can even enlarge). The original resize and border resize functions did not appeal to me too.
