This looks more like a problem with gqview. IMO it seems like gqview
wants to open a _new_ GIMP and run the image in there. I don't think
GIMP is the problem with this that might be the reason to why there is
nothing about the things you are looking for.

Have you asked the same question to the people behind gqview? Maybe they
have better answers?

IMHO gqview should see that there is a GIMP opened and open it with a
new image or something simular.
