If you choose the Selection Tool but "Show Frame" is unselected you get

    The underlying problem was the display of frame dimensions while dragging the frame. This I destroy with the frame, so it is not available for display if there is no frame. SVN now contains the fix for the underlying issue, i. e. it no longer tries to show the frame dimensions when there is no frame.

    However, I'll leave this open for discussion for a while, because I feel unsure about the suggestion of automatically enabling the frame display on click on the select button. I can see both good and bad in it, so feel free to comment.

    I thought about it also and wasn't sure if it is ok to enable "Show Frame" automatically when using the selection tool but after all it makes no sense to use the selection tool without the red frame. After all I'm not a friend of to much automatism but in this case (as you see in my appended fix) it's more confusing that you can select something but you can't see exactly what you select.

    Fixed by turning frame display on during selection and off again when finished.
    This fixes a previously undiscovered error with positioning the main control window and works around gnome bug # 524110 in conjunction with compiz.
