RE: Resolution problem
DPI has little to do with that if the size in pixels of the image doesn't change.

Are you stroking with a "line" or using a paint tool? "Line" is normally much cleaner.

RE: Resolution problem
Strange behavior: stroking the selection doesn't produce anti-aliasing pixels and the circle looks jagged. But if you do:

- "Select/To Path"
- "Edit/Stroke path"

Then you get the anti-aliasing and the circle is smooth.

If you need clean geometric shapes as paths to stroke, use this script to produce them.
