In violation of good forum behavior I am commenting on this eternal, and very
old thread because that is all I have the bandwidth to do.  I also hate the
export feature.  I even keep an old Linux system around that has 2.6 on it so I
can quickly do simple edits because of this annoyance.  I finally decided to
google "gimp hate 'You can use this dialog' "  and behold, a plethora of painful
and ignored requests were returned.  I would love the option to choose which way
to have it behave.  Does that not satisfy both camps?

Now that my complaint is voiced, I must add:  I love gimp.  I am indebted to the
creators and maintainers.  It is free and I have done nothing to contribute to
it.  I am also not a professional photo editor, just a casual user.  My uses
usually involve modifying screenshots for presentations at my technology company
or swapping the heads around on family photos for a laugh.  May gimp live long! 
(even without a majority of us upgrading past 2.6)
