Trying to set a desired crop rectangle. When pressing Enter (or Apply), crop jumps to some other rectangle, smaller

Hi Alexandre,

congrats with 2.5 final;)

I gave the crop function another try - and have a further suggestion for improvement of the cropping.
When crop area includes some empty spaces without input image pixels
and crop icon is pressed, the crop rectangle always auto-sizes to exclude the empty space.
This is not always desirable, as empty space is likely pre-selected by the user.
So if there is an attempt to fine-tune crop selection, previous user input gets overridden by auto-sizing with exclusion of the empty space.

Although auto-sizing is a useful function, it would be nice to be able to bypass it, may be clicking crop with a Shift key?
