Okay, I have a horrible hack to suggest here.  In recent daily builds  
there is a "Color Key" tool (in Utilities) that lets you draw a single  
rectangular region of several colors and associated labels.  You could  
use it to draw a rectangle with no labels and with the color set to  
the background color to achieve the same effect as cropping without  
the image ending prematurely.
