I've used the iTunes complaints form to file a complaint against this
app based on publicity, application name, keywords and other (i.e. the
icon). With some explanatory text of what people expect to get when they
see an application called GIMP photo editor somewhere.

Well... or at least I'm trying to, that page is sitting on
"Submitting..." for a while already.

Let's see if this is enough, once the complaint has been submitted.

I fear that getting the 99c back might be more hassle than worth (unless
Apple just returns it to you, I have no idea how they handle such
cases). Maybe the fact that you have helped to take down an annoying
trap is some consolation (if it works, I hope it does)).
Sorry about your inconvenience.
