I expected the menubar to stay on in fullscreen mode.  I just wanted to
point out that my expectations were different from what happened, which I
realise is unneccessary information from your point of view.  (I only have
a recent build at home so it takes me a while to check these things).

Having to turn it back on for full screen mode is sensible enough, and an
entirely reasonably solution.

Adobe seems to think Fullscreen with menu bar is an important enough
option to give it a toolbar button and menu item.  Perhaps the GIMP would
consider giving it a menu item (and that menu item would allow a keyboard
shortcut which is what I really want.  if i recall correctly Photoshop
uses Shift+F, instead of just F for fullscreen).

Thanks for the clarification.

Should I file a request in bugzilla, asking for a "Fullscreen with Menu"
option or do you think it would not be worth adding?
