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.

So let's not throw away the baby with the bath water.
