It's not only parallel operations on an image. Gimp doesn't like you to
change the tool while it is active. So you can't rotate an image (using 
the transform tools; using the rotate plugin should work) and change to 
the paint-tool to paint even if you do this on another image. Tools are 
global, so we have to disable tool-changes globally.
