Hi there,

Unless other mac-gimp users here can deal with this, I suggest you open a bug 
report (if there is none already, and I do not recall seeing it). 

The only workaround I can see is to be able to redefine what keys are used for 
the current "command + click"  commands. ("alt" on PC's)
However, such a change may not be trivial.
