What is the expected result? Or are you describing a sequence of actions?

Action: I increased the window breadth so I could see the part of the image
that was missing off the side.
Result: Window increased in size, but image stayed in the same place, with
half of it still missing off the left side. The right side, increased by my
enlargening of the window, just filled with whitespace. I couldn't shift
the image to where I could see it because there was no scroll bar at the

Scroll bar is enabled by default. Perhaps it should automatically
appear when canvas doesn't fit the viewport. Is that what you expect
GIMP to do?

Action: I selected the move tool (this is hard to find, btw, in the
transform menu - it would imho be better standing alone in the main tool
menu), and attempted to move the image to where I could see it.
Result: The image moved but its canvas didn't. So while what was lost off
the left shifted into view, what could be seen on the right disappeared off
its own edge in concert.

You expect the Move tool to do panning. This is simply not what the
tool is designed to do :)

Please use either of the two actions to pan:

1) Press spacebar and move your mouse around without clicking its buttons.
2) Press scroll wheel of your mouse and drag the mouse around.
