I want to say two things:

1) The new behaviour is a TOTAL PIECE OF SHIT. And the authors are just MORONS
because they argue that if you dislike it, you are an idiot, "misuse" gimp and
should only use MSPAINT because of a low IQ. Just like it was with the
single-window mode, yeah.

2) But - Good news, everyone! That bevaviour really fucked me up and I got to
the code and patched it. And the patch to DISABLE that piece of shit is very
simple - you just need to comment out two if()'s in
app/plug-in/gimppluginmanager-file.c (see below or get it from

After patching, Gimp still suggests you to save the opened *.png or anything in
XCF on Ctrl-S, but it does so only the FIRST time, and ALLOWS to actually select
any other format.
