> 2.6.6. Tested on Windows.
As has been said before, one should not think that the way GIMP's
windows behave on Windows is how they are supposed to behave. There
are bugs in GTK+ on Windows that affect GIMP.
It is pointless to describe the misbehaviour of GIMP windows on
Windows to GIMP developers, as they don't use Windows themselves.
To see GIMP behave as it is supposed to, you need to use it on Linux.
The reference window manager is metacity, as far as I know, but also
other window managers might work well enough.
