Uuuhm... This has been a feature of GIMP since quite early 1.1.x series.
Just do a "Save As" with a JPEG extension, and as you've pointed out,
decrease/increase the quality slider until you find something you're
content with (of course, make sure you're not viewing the image
zoomed-out, and make sure "JPEG previewing" is enabled). Then, just
click the OK button, and the image is saved exactly with the same
settings you just saw. (It also warps back to normal again after the
save so you don't lose any quality from saving -- no `undo' is needed.)

BTW, how can you claim you saw the adjustments in the image window, but
not the errors?
