This covers, exactly, one of my biggest problems with the recent Gimp.

I agree here, as well.

Gimp is the _only_ GTK app that I use. The only other non-KDE GUI
applications I use on a regular basis (at home on Linux) are Mozilla (but
only when I want to use Google Maps, otherwise I use Konqueror) and xview.
(Well, there are games, too, but most are SDL-based.)
Another data point: my wife was happily using GNOME 1.2 and when we
upgraded here to GNOME 2.0, it only lasted about a day. I asked if she'd
like to try KDE, since it seemed to make more sense. She's been using it
ever since. (She uses Gimp a lot, as well as Firefox and Gthumb. I'll have
to ask what her feelings are on the recent file chooser interface in Gimp.)
