Sorry if I worried you.  I tried to to make it apparent that I was not
perposing that dialogs should not be able to be placed here. I spicifically
said "when there aren't any dialogs in the toolbox". I also said this "
This is a bit strange when every other place you can place a dialog there
is a thin ~5px line that lites up that tells you that you can place it
there." I guess my draft must not have saved because I meant to indicate
that this ~5px line should still be there to place dialogs in.

Basically this feature request is to drop the label and add space between
the tools and the toolbox widgets. This way the toolbox looks better when
there are not dialogs in the toolbox. Not to remove the ability to place
dialogs here.

Doesn't GIMP have the option to disable tooltips?

Jesus is my Lord and Savior. Praise be unto God for giving us a way to live
with him.
