I'll chime in here regarding my situation...

Windows XP. GIMP 2.4.5. Binary is Jernej's
Windows file association (for .bmp for my tests) is to "gimp-2.4" 
(C:\Program Files\GIMP-2.0\bin\gimp-2.4.exe).
Multiple instances of GIMP arise.

If I associate to gimpwin-remote (C:\Program 
Files\GIMP-2.0\bin\gimp-win-remote.exe) then only one instance of GIMP 
appears. However, there also appears a message in its own window: "GIMP 
Message  Opening 'C:\Program Files\GIMP-2.0\bin\gimp-2.4.exe' failed: 
unknown file type" (which can be closed without harm).

I don't select multiple images to open at once, but open one image from the 
file manager, then click on another image to open it. Interestingly, the 
"GIMP Message" error appears only when the first image is opened. If I close 
the error window and open subsequent images, the error does not appear again 
(unless I close GIMP completely, and then it appears again for the first 
image opened).
