Closing Free Selection Tool
From GIMP help:
"Revision $Revision: 2435 $ 2007-12-22 P.P
....
When you release the mouse button, the selection is closed by connecting the current pointer location to the start location with a straight line."

I remember this used to be the behavior, but for a long time it only closes for me if I move the pointer very close to the start point, otherwise it just holds on and keeps selecting more every time I click. VERY annoying! At times, if I click very close to the starting point several times, but not close enough, the entire selection changes shape, destroying the selection I just drew. What on earth is happening??
This is GIMP 2.6.10 on Debian stable.

Thanks for any hints!
