Rotate/Resize problem

Rotate/Resize problem
When Rotating or Resizing an image I have recently run into an issue. This is new behaviour so I think I either have something set incorrecly, or it came in with a recent re-install.

When Rotating or Resizing, and setting Clipping to Adjust, it always Crops the image.

In other words: If I were to attempt to stretch an image bigger than 1000x1000 to say 1500x1500 it appears to do all the correct calculations, and does stretch the image, but anything outside the original 1000x1000 disappears.

Likewise if I were to attempt to rotate an image that were say, 1000x1500, 90°, I would end up with a rotated image 1000x1000 in size, and transparent/background for the balance of the original 1000x1500 sized image.

Any ideas what could be causing this?

I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling (it remembered all my settings, so I don't know how much good this might have done), setting the Clipping option to Clip, then Crop and back to Adjust again (also with no result).

Using Gimp 2.6.11 on Windows Vista. Your constructive comments and questions welcome.

Tested this by inserting a layer smaller than the canvas (a small arrow). First three times I attemped to rotate it did just as I described in my previous post. The next attempt got a Floating Transformation Layer and after anchoring everything has been behaving normally. This has happened before and will most like behave for several days. Any ideas?

Is this different from the rotate tool in the toolbox? Rotating a single layer JPG as test and it behaves as described in my previous post. Selecting Rotate in toolbox, Clicking on image, Rotate dialog box pops up, I enter 90°, click 'rotate', it rotates and crops the edges off. Canvas is not rotating.

I do not remember having this problem before as long as 'adjust' was selected.

I have attemped to attach a file showing this more clearly, but do not see it attached and don't know if it went through.

Tested this and 'Selection' does seem to be the issue. When inserting an image it comes in default as 'selected' (hadn't noticed before). If I attempt to rotate/resize, before I have lost that default selection I was having issue. All I have to do it insure the new layer is not selected (marching ants) and all is good with the world.

Thank you for your help with this issue.
