Rectangle image gets cut when rotating in Gimp

I recently started to scan my images useing XSANE directly into the Gimp. When a simpleton like me needs flip the already scanned image I found that the image gets cut.

In order to get the image rotated as in much simpler photo editing and view programs. You need to:

select the whole image and layer

select Layer —-> Transform  —-> Rotate 90 degrees

You will then have the image cut

In order to change the canvas size to fit the image select

Select Image  —->  Fit Image to canvas as you see here below
