What does help a bit is bringing an image window to the front then
hitting TAB twice - that'll hide then show all the dock windows and thus
bring them to the front.

By the way - would it be possible to make that key (TAB) configurable?
It would be really nice to be able to work in fullscreen all the time by
just showing and hiding all dock windows when neccessary, but TAB ceases
to work as soon as some control in a dock has focus...

(I guess an option to disable TAB to switch between controls in the dock
windows - which I personally never need, since I navigate the docks with
the mouse - isn't an option, is it?)

That or the ability to scroll beyond the image's bounds (extending the
scroll bars to go half the width/height of the window beyond the image
edges) would make working a lot easier - I find myself constantly
resizing image windows after opening to fit them between the toolbox and
the dock so that everything stays accessible.
