Sound logical, except if I recall correctly The GIMP loads brushes,
patterns etc. on startup.  Maybe if you refresh the palettes or
something [I know if you have a Script-Fu you can reload the
Script-Fus without restarting the app, but you have to go through a
menu so it's eaiser to click on the little line at the top and make
that particular menu permimantly float when editing Script-Fus], but
I'd doubt it'd apply for this considering we're talking about
restarting the application.

If you're looking for a solution, how about learning C++ [or whatever
GIMP's language is] and writing a patch yourself?
