What OS?  What version?  Which version of GIMP? What else is running?

I know that in some OS, a selection on a dialog can be activated through
pressing the spacebar - perhaps what is happening is that your passing a
selection/entry to the last active dialog (in your case it sounds like the
layer visibility check?).  Can you just use your middle mouse button to
pan, or bind the modifier for panning to a different key?
