"Dialogs" is even more special than "Windows" and in single-window-mode
it is at least as wrong as using the term "Windows". The "Windows" menu
name on the other hand is pretty much default and used in many

the main use of it in GIMP as well. With the exception that we also list
the dockables since we consider them something like sub-windows.
