In a nutshell, yes. That feature is not yet available in the windows port
(or at least it wasn't last time I checked).
There are some utilities availalbe for windows which allow you to forcibly
add support for always on top to all your applications but that is a bit
messy. If you search the gimpwin-users list at Yahoo groups you will
probably find past suggestions about how to compensate for the crappy
Window Management on Windows.
