The subject says it all: in the present situation (especially in the current
git version), the Toolbox is definitely not an ordinary dockable dialog, but
much less than before. In previous versions, closing it terminated GIMP, and
it was the main support of the menu bar, which probably explained its
Now, the Toolbox remains special, but I don't know why. In single-window
mode, it cannot be moved, nor closed. A dockable placed in the same dock
behaves differently, especially it cannot show the image selection, not
automatically follow it.
Are there serious reasons for this special behavior?
