Problem with rectangle selection tool

Somehow, I changed the behavior of this tool, but I don't know how. Many times, I need to draw a box around an object. I usually click at the upper-left of the object with the rectangle tool selected, and then drag the cursor down and to the right to position the rectangle.

Today, I started playing with guides (select Image, then Guides, then select a specific guide). I wanted to see how they worked, since I occasionally can use help positioning an object in a GIMP file. Subsequently, I found that when I tried to use the rectangle selection tool, as I pulled the cursor down and right, the rectangle spreads up and left. I don't have the ability to control where the rectangle does and thus, can't "select" an object to draw a box around.

I've tried the Remove all guides option, but that doesn't make any difference. Sorry to bug you all with such as totally newbie question, but I use GIMP at work on a daily basis (I'm a technical writer for a software company), and I really need it to work as expected.

Thanks in advance for your help.

-Trip

Nevermind. I accidentally selected the "Expand from center" check box in the toolbox. My bad. :blush:
