I too find the selection handles harder to work with.  I submitted a 
request for an adjustable size; I don't mind if you add a note there 
asking for shape as well (the older rectangles would be preferable to me 
as well, much less ambiguous than any anti-aliased curve shape):

The new selection borders drive me crazy - I can't see the edges clearly 
when resizing, and can't see them at all when applying border treatments 
- request to make that option here:
