Thanks for the suggestion. It sounds like that is the best solution.
However, not being a programmer myself and not even having the python script
they mention (running on Windoze we just download the pre-compiled binaries)
I wouldn't have the first clue how to implement a script-fu server in the
environment we use.

The method of calling it that I mentioned always worked fine with the GIMP
2.2. It was only after the upgrade to 2.6 that it started spawning the extra
process and leaving it behind, and I'm not sure what the difference is. So I
will look into using the script-fu server solution in the future after I can
work out all the how's and so-forth, but for now if anyone knows the inner
workings of gimp-quit or why calling gimp.exe from the command line forks
two gimp processes I'd sure be grateful for some insight. Thanks.
