Bet you Five Euro Havoc Pennington will disagree and that the GIMP should
be setting additional hints or suchlike.

The ImageMap plugin has the a maximise window decoration but very few
other windows do, so even if it is the Window managers fault the GIMP will
have some blame to shoulder too.  I think there is a distinction between a
dialog and a normal window that is not clearly defined somewhere.

I'll try and find a solution to this as you clearly dont have a problem
with the principle and it would shame to have a useful feature going to
waste because users fail to realise it is there.

I'll probalby file a bug report to keep track and help me remember.  I'll
assign it to myself, please dont close it invalid until I can properly
verify that the problem is not with the GIMP.
