No, it is not. The problem is that most raw formats are TIFF files with some 
extra data. For CR2 that's not a big problem, there is a way to recognize them 
(Canon was clever enough to have a unique magic for their files), other formats 
however can't be reliably distinguished from TIFFs. NEF is one of those. So 
right now the code wrongly assumes that your TIFF is a NEF and sends it to 
darktable. Until that is fixed you have to manually select the TIFF loader in 
the lower left hand corner of the open dialog.

Happy coincidence. Maybe you can provide a sample file to bugzilla so someone 
can have a look at properly supporting them in GIMP.
