If you want to change the behaviour on Windows, then you should check how you 
can contribute to GTK+. This is where window-management related problems are 
supposed to be solved (for example, if the the "always on top" hint for docks 
would work, then one big problem would be solved already).

There shouldn't be no platform-dependent code in GIMP for this, after all this 
is what GTK+ is supposed to abstract away from applications.
