Resizing Ellipse Select Tool using Ctrl+Shift or just using Shift have suddenly stopped working. Resize with Ctrl still works but is useless since I cannot get a perfect circle anymore. When I resize and then press Shift, it all of a sudden turns into a small selection area that does not move at all with the cursor marked in red (cursor cannot be screenshot)
Everything still works for the rectangle select tool though. Here an animation. Notice that whenever I press Shift, the ellipse selection freezes as a small circle that doesn't move:
Here's what happens when I first do a LMB and then press Shift. It works properly for rectangle select but it drags the circle select around. But if I drag first and then press Shift, it turns into a small circle which is frozen and doesn't move. I think this is a bug. It was still working with the same document today and then suddenly started behaving like this.
Is this a bug? Closing the Gimp software and opening again did not resolve the problem, neither did creating a new document.
