How would that be specific to GIMP? The problem is that there is not
only the combo-box. There's a full directory view below it. It's
hidden in an expander but that doesn't change the fact that it is
there. This is however completely in the GTK+ realm. It could probably
be improved but that would have to be done in GTK+.

The entries are all available in the Image menu, so you can easily
bind shortcuts to the entries that don't have one yet. In GIMP 2.2
these shortcuts work globally. Even if the Layers dialog, the toolbox
or any other dock is focused, can you use these shortcuts. In GIMP 2.2
you can set keyboard shortcuts for almost everything. You aren't even
limited to what appears in the menus. Perhaps you should explain that
to the people laughing. Laugh about their ignorance.
