Never mind — I unchecked Show Selection in the View menu and it went away.

Simply toggling "show selection mask" off isn't quite enough in GIMP as 
the selection is still present and will affect subsequent tool 
operations -- look for the "Select None" command in the Edit menu and 
memorize its keyboard shortcut.

This is because in GIMP, the selection mask (or simply 'selection') is an actual part of the image 
(independent of layers) and therefore remains in place until you explicitly tell GIMP to unselect.  This is 
different from other applications (such as a word processor) where the selection isn't a 'thing' in and of 
itself and thus disappears automatically when you're no longer using it.
