I have encountered this same issue with GIMP 2.8 as well as the associated
Inkscape interface problem (https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/1131428) on
my new Windows 8.1 work laptop.
After some investigation I have discovered that the interfering software in my
case is the following AutoHotKey script:
Happily I do not make much use of this script on this laptop so have simply
stopped using it as a workaround. However I have used this script for years (and
still continue to) on two older Vista laptops without it causing this
interference. So I guess there is more to this / additional Windows dependency.
I hope that helps the developers to narrow down the cause. Let me know if you
would like any more details / tests.
All the best,
