Even in single window mode, it looks very bothersome to me. You can
see the chrome browser next to GIMP, which shows a proper icon making
it very easy to recognize whereas GIMP shows a generated
thumbnail-icon of the opened image. Moreover Windows 7 was already
showing a bigger thumbnail of the whole GIMP window anyway.
Right now, the status is that some OS/desktop/window managers seem to
never use the generated thumbnail-icon anyway, and the ones who use it
would anyway also show their own thumbnail in better resolution.
Sorry, but for me the bothersome application is Chrome... because if I
have several Chrome instances, I cannot distinguish them (while i could
if Chrome replaced its icon by the site's favicon, or even had distinct
icon for its "open" and "private" modes)( Firefox has the same
shortcomings). Currently, if I have several Gimp images open, I can
identify them that way, however distorted they are, as long as they are
different enough. And even in SWM, I could have several Gimp instances
running... So let's not throw the baby with the bath water.
At this point, I believe that the whole feature should be dropped,
whatever mode one is in.
If anyone likes the feature (we have not had 1 single positive
feedback until now), please make yourself heard now.
