Also XSane (alternative gtk frontend to SANE, also works as a gimp plugin) I
think they know about this, since at least the debian package for
XSane-for-gimp-1.1 installs itself here already. 

Anyone with scanner check that out btw, it is really nice. Has lots of 
things to control, like black and white and gray point by clicking on spots
of the image etc..

Maybe it could also scan the plugin/script dirs for non.working scripts?
Just an idea, tell me if it makes any sense..

The Egg should perhaps be hidden again for the release? Aspirin, got any
evil ideas? :)

While we are at it, what do people think of patching the default session
file (the one that gets installed by default) to open the following dialogs:

        - toolbox (yea, right :)
        - brushes (a lot of people have no clue how to change the brush size
          though we now have the indicators... perhaps this is not needed
          since we have those..
        - Layers dialog (this is a very important part of Gimp anyway -
          Photoshop has it open by default too)
        - Palette with Visibone as the defaut (I think it is already?)
        - Other suggestions?

I assume the problem is not knowing the screen resolution and thus where to
place the dialogs? 

Is this worth doing?

Doh! There is a mag _tool_ also! 8) 

I always use the shortcuts! Never really used it, except for checking out
for the first time what it does .. :)
