Selection not copying
When I use the rectangle select tool, hit copy, then paste into new image, I get nothing but an empty, transparent image the size of my selection.

I've successfully done this many times, but now, nothing.

Any idea why my new image contains no image?

Make sure you have an active layer (blue highlight in the Layers list) in the source image when you do the copy. You can also try to cut/paste, you 'll see if you cut something in the original image (Ctrl-Z to undo).
