Aligning Text in GIMP

You would think that aligning text within the GIMP would be a simple task. Go to the "Text Tool" add your text and use the controls there to align "Left justified", "Right justified", "Centered" or "Filled".  While that works fine but it may not be what you are looking for (you may not even notice any change if you only have a small amount of text. 

Using this method will align the text within the boundaries of the new text layer that you added to the image.  It won't align the text relative to the image.
