I think it  a conceptual error wanting 300DPI screenshots - Maybe not - 
but wait  second - the GIMP interface is designed to  be displayed at typical 
monitor resolutions -  from 72 to 96 dpi.

On the other hand, a monitor will have 15'' to 17'' inhes, and your print out 
of a screenshot should be a few inches accross - so the 1000 pixels wide, 15 
inch at  96 dpi screenshot would make for a 5 inch wide ate 300dpi screenshot 
- no matter.

If you do intend to actually make printouts of 15'', 17'' in paper, 
nonetheless, a "real world" screen shot will do - the interface text may 
appear aliased or blurred in a good quality printing - but hey---that's how 
it looks like on the screen. :-) And on top of that,  you may still try to 
increase the quality of a screenshot scaled up to 3000 pixels using the Gimp 
itself, if there is the need.

One last thing - if you actually can find a 3000 pixel screenshot, the 
interface - at least the icons - will appear proportionally small - you won't 
be able to achieve better icons than from a 1024x768 screenshot.

Anyway, you may be planning something different, that I had not grasped at 
all.  But if you are after "300dpi screenshots" just because the clerk at 
your printshop told you so, the way to go is to scale up a plain screenshot.
