Well, for that image I would probably use Beizer curves or Paths to
create the selection.  Another option would be to use Quickmask, the red
square in the lower left corner of the image window to 'paint' the
selection.  There are some tutorials floating around on the Net, I think
tigert has a good one...

If you are using Gimp 1.0, please upgrade to the latest developer's
version.  It is very stable, and has many new features that will make
complicated selections easier.
