Scale Tool not working
Disclaimer 1: This isn't actually my problem, it's a friend's. She doesn't speak english though, so I'm posting for her.

Disclaimer 2: She described the problem to me over the internet, so I can't be sure it isn't just a PEBKAC.

After pasting in a PNG, and it's made into a Floating Selection layer, she wanted to scale it down using the Scale tool. So she clicked and dragged till she got the right size, but upon clicking on Scale (in the little dialog that pops up with the Scale tool), the dialog box vanishe ... and the layer went back to its original size. She tried multiple times and got the same problem.

I even got her to click on "Cancel" rather than Scale in case it was a traslation error, like the translator mixed up the Scale and Cancel buttons, but nope.

She's on a Mac OS version of GIMP 2.6.8. Language is French.
