I don't have that menu option on mine (2.2.4 Fedora RPM). Here's an alternate 
"manual" technique:

 - Select eraser tool, 100% opacity
 - Select white as background colour
 - Select circle fuzzy as the brush, size as appropriate to your needs
 - Click at or fractionally outside one of the corners
 - Hold down shift and click in an adjacent corner. The image should now be 
faded along that edge
 - Repeat for other edges

You may needs to experiment with different brushes and distances outside the 
corner to get it "just right".
