I have previously used the GIMP 1.3.x builds but I just didn't have a copy
conveniently in front of me that I could check against.

So it was a dumb question.

I phrased the comment about localisation poorly, I realise it doesn't read

Adjusting thing dynamically was the problem!
The minimum size for the widget wasn't big enough so it kept resizing and
that resizing was the annoying glitch in question.

I dont know why distributions that support startup notification dont just
disable the splash screen since they dont have any technical reason for
having it.

I'll just disable the splash sceen on my machine and not mention it again.
