The only fix (more of a workaround really) I've been able to figure out for this
is to disable Single Window mode In Gimp's Windows Menu. Then Script-Fu dialogs
will appear the way they're supposed to. I've tested this on Win7 32 & 64 bit.

I'm surprised no one has responded to this...and I can't believe it hasn't been
fixed. When I first started with Gimp it confused the crap out of me until I
realized what was happening. I can easily see this discouraging newbies and
cause them to abandon Gimp altogether. And of course, for common tasks this can
be a maddening issue.
