That one bugs me too and I am very tempted to file it as a bug, because "select
item to move" is the default setting for the Move tool. You can, however,
activate the Shift modifier and then move the layer group as a single unit.
On the subject of groups versus individual grouped items, I really like the way
Inkscape handles it:
- Normal click selects single items relative to the current context (parent
layer/group). If the clicked item is in a group, the group itself reacts.
- Ctrl+click bypasses groups and selects individual items whether they are
grouped or not.
Though of course Inkscape's behavior isn't necessarily applicable to GIMP....
Numbers may not lie, but neither do they tell the whole truth.
