OpenOffice doesn't yet support the various drops which the GIMP
provides.

A short explanation will help:

When an application puts something on the clipboard, it does so
by registering a number of mime types that it can handle - thus,
when you select part of a web page in Firefox, the CLIPBOARD
clipboard is taken by Firefox, and it registers a number of mime
types - text/plain and text/html for example. Then when you drag
& drop the selection to another application, the application
chooses the format in which it wants the source data, and
requests it (via X) from the source application.

The GIMP now supports the following mime types for copy & paste
and drag & drop data: 

Drops & pastes:
 file
 text/plain
 text/uri-list
 image/png
 image/jpeg

A bunch more image/*s

 image/svg+xml

Drags & copies:
 image/svg+xml (from paths dock)
 image/png
 image/jpeg
 A bunch more image/*s (from layers, selections, bunch of other
stuff).

So if OOo supports image/png or image/svg+xml from the clipboard,
it'll automatically work with the GIMP.

Cheers,
Dave.
