GIMP is currently limited to 8-bit values. This is being worked on,
but the work progresses slowly because there are not many gimp
developers (and some of them are forced to wear shoes during the day).

The right fix is probably to wait for the gegl-based support of greater
colour depths.  In the meatime, you can probably use "convert" from
ImageMagick or pgmtopnm to dither or approximate the images using
8 bits.
