Really, I'm an outsider in gtk/gnome topic.
I just like gimp, and I'm afraid a little bit of
gimp starts to leave bazaar concept as seen 
at gnome.

I realized that old fileselector is not too perfect, so 
I used filemanager's drag and drop to open files.
(what is nonsense to open a new app for that reason, 
but an image viewer is needed for graphics work, 
because gimp has not such a selector), so 
I will continue this way (until I learned the new one).

Best regards,
