outline of layers

I used beizier tool to select part of an image, floated it and named it
as a new layer. I then worked on this new layer for some corrections.
When I turn on the visibility of both the layers(background and the new
layer), I can see a small(approx 1pixel) white outline surrounding the
smaller layer. I have not done anything in the layer to change the
colors. This does not vanish even if I merge the layers. I do not want
the final image to reveal any layer operations I performed. What should
I do?

I found this exact problem reported before.
http://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/lists/gimp-user/2001-May/003588.html

I tried searching through the bugzilla, I found similar problems(bug 22375)
reported. But I could not find the exact one.

I use gimp 1.2.3. Has anyone else faced this problem?
I found a simple way to recreate the problem. Make a ellipse selection in
an image, choose select->float. Then anchor. A thin elliptical outline is
visible.

ps: This does not happen with rectangular select.

I found the problem. The elliptical and beizier selections had the
"anti aliasing" option checked(default), which I was not aware of.
When I zoomed on the selection, I could see antialiasing on the
border. It seems that with antialiasing selection, the appearence of a
white or transparent border is expected(This was declared NOTABUG ---
 http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=104031 ).
However I wonder how no one else here encountered this!

1. how to turn off selected layer outline?

I'm using Photoshop 7. When I select a shape layer, it gets this white
hairline outline around it. Is there any way to turn this off? I find this
distracting and I always have to select a different layer each time I make a
layer effect change to be able to see it properly. I can tell perfectly well
which layer is selected by looking at the layers palette.

Thanks
