No, it means the bugs are in GTK+, not GIMP, and it requires GTK+
developers who run Windows to fix these bugs (or a GIMP developer who
runs Windows and has some knowledge of GTK+ and an inclination to fix
these bugs). Do you seriously think a person running Linux is going to
be able to reliably fix a bug that only shows up on Windows?

Your expectations that GIMP will exert such extreme control over the
window management are also unreasonable. Your window manager manages
your windows, GTK+ communicates to the window manager what window
behaviour GIMP is asking for, GIMP communicates to GTK+ what window
behaviour it wants. The particular 'communications breakdown' is
between GTK+ and the Windows window manager, GIMP is not involved in
the problem, only a casualty of it.
