That is odd. I have the same settings (including single-window mode, with my
window carefully sized/placed to fill the whole screen because there's a bug
with maximized window status) and have yet to encounter the problem.
Hmm ... I have an idea what could be responsible (though exactly why fails me),
so try these steps:
1 - Size your GIMP window as desired.
2 - Go to the "Window Management" section of Preferences and hit the button for
"Save Window Positions Now".
3 - Restart GIMP and see if the behavior persists.
Numbers may not lie, but neither do they tell the whole truth.
