cannot merge layers after using scissors
I am using the scissors tool and then filling the selection with a color. I have done this both by first making a new transparent layer as well as without a new layer. To continue working on the image I have tried merging the layers as well as flatten the image. The 'marching ants' however do not disappear and I am unable to edit the rest of the image. This is a new problem.

If I 'alpha to selection' I can edit the other parts of the image.

Using Gimp 2.8.16 on Ubuntu 16.04.

Thanks for suggestions
