My research indicates this is an issue with GIMP and not something outside
of it. I came across another program with this issue that the programmer
fixed after the users created enough noise.

I unfortunately forgot the url, but one of the users went round and round
with the developer because originally he was not going to fix it. He used
the "it is an issue outside" also, for which the users started calling him
arrogant for having that mentality.

I am sure I will eventually fix GIMP or come up with a work around, at
which point I will forward the info on for your consumption.
