There got to be a way to change this behaviour of g_print(), no?
Regardless on what's done in the glib side, why not using g_set_print_handler and g_log_set_handler, as Alif Wahid suggests, to redirect the messages to the Error Console? I, for one, as a user of the Win32 version expected to find the messages there and when they were shown in a different window I wondered why. Perhaps it's also better under Linux so that the messages aren't lost if the user doesn't open gimp from a console.
