[Gimp-user] apply gradient to text, include & preserve alphs

I've tried about 15 solutions that describe applying a gradient to text, and
can't figure out how to include the tiny alpha'ed outlines around the letters. 
The results look great, but not impeccable.

I start with black text and I've tried selecting it with layer -> transparency
-> alpha-to-selection AND with select by color, but when you zoom, you can see
some of the pixel borders are left out of the selection.  I can get those
borders included by increasing the threshold on select-by-color, but when I
apply the gradient it doesn't preserve the alpha values and ends using a solid
color (worse/blockey result).

Any tips are welcome!
