We agree till here

Yes, it behaves different.
This behaviour is so strange that I never tried this one.

Oh, no. Not obviously.
A small text "fill all" at the right side of the slider would make it obviously.

I think we should go to more lengths making a logic and easy to uses user
interface. This should include user-test.

Maybe we should make a poll on www.gimp.org to solve this problems.

I think we have to make polls to solve this problems, otherwise there is no
possible solution to improve the UI. UI's tend to stay the same even if they are

Ok, first idea for poll:

-Do you use the bucket-fill
1. All the time
2. I normally use "fill with foreground/background-color"
3. Only to fill with pattern.
4. What is bucket fill?
