Many good tips have been offered for this problem. Here's my solution:
Never put one application window on top of another!

I use virtual desktops ("workspaces") and dedicate a workspace to each
application. If I ever need another application to share a workspace
with GIMP, for example for drag-n-drop, I bring it into the GIMP
workspace, do the d-n-d, and send it back home.

(I also use focus-follows mouse and no-autoraise :) )
