YES. Especially with the grabbed mouse. I am casting my vote for this
100%, little as it may be worth =)

Since the only advantage of this is the stack-trace for non-developers,
why don't we just have it dump stack, then die, by default, unless you're
running it under GDB or with a --do-annoying-stack-trace-crap option? I
usually launch GIMP from a button, although nowadays I am actually running
xterm -iconic -e gimp, so that when it dies I can just kill the
xterm. (and hope that it wasn't grabbing the pointer...)

used but never used up. I don't know who built to it.
It is like the extern void: It came before the first kernel.
