I searched but the closest I found was #595708.  Not sure if this is
related or not.

With GIMP 2.6 Metacity works fine.  Seems a bit of a stretch to force
people to change window managers with 2.7 just so it doesn't do this.
It would be nice, at a minimum, to know which window manager is
recommended to get the correct behavior.

If I knew the right bug number it might help me understand it better.
Maybe Metacity is being updated to address the issue.
