Unless we change something, users upgrading from 2.2 will have exactly
this experience though. Currently we migrate the sessionrc, so the docks
setup is kept when upgrading to GIMP 2.4. The gimprc is also migrated,
but since we have changed the default value, the fg/bg color indicator
is going to disappear when upgrading.

I see several ways to fix this:

 (1) we decide that the fg/bg color indicator is kept by default
 (2) we don't migrate the user's sessionrc and force her to start
     with the default dock layout
 (3) we do major hacks during the migration process

I don't like the third option because such hacks are likely going to
introduce bugs. Especially since the migration code is difficult to
