Good tip.  I've been using GIMP for years on Windows/Linux, and never noticed 
that dialog.  I wish is was just a single
click to bring up and image instead of a double-click.  Then you could tie a 
keyboard shortcut to the dialog, and just
single-click the image.  Any reason it's a double-click?  Any devs reading this?

That's exactly what I do as well.  And I bounce around the dialogs with 
keyboard shortcuts.  Works great.
That along with VirtuaWin (virtual desktops) for Windows seems to keep things 
manageable on Windows.
