About the best technique I've found for doing something like that is:

1. use the select contiguous regions tool to select all the black
2. click the quickmask button in the lower left hand corner
3. use filters>blur>blur to blur the whole thing (aka smooth it, you'll have to blur it alot to get it smooth)
4. use image>colors>layers to sharpen up your selection
5. click the turn off quickmask button in the lower left hand corner, giving you a smooth selection
6. fill the selection with black
