Well I think that GIMP should avoid doing that, and instead expect you
to do it with inkscape; transfer of paths between the two programs is
very simple and inkscape's just plain better at path editing.

Actually, if you perform these operations on the selection and then
convert the resultant selection back to a path, how does that work for
you? I think, if GIMP got a better selection to path function (for
example, the one that I made which uses PoTrace as a backend.), then
this would work quite well for your purposes.

actually, it is.. 'Bug fixes' :)

Yes, it really is. http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=448417
