Nope, I have never used GIMP on Windows! I only said "now" randomly. I
think I was just letting know what OS I was using so no one had to
ask. So originally in the developmental releases, the developers just
had it checked in gnome to be always on top, and the ontop feature
wasn't something intrinsic in the new GIMP? That's weir because when I
used the developmental, I seem it remember it being more dynamic, like
the toolbox would always be ontop of GIMP canvas, bu other windows
like firefox would go over the toolbox. This setting in Edit ->
Preferences -> Window Management seems to just make the toolbox an
"uber-window".  Maybe I should go back to the developmental release,
or am I not remembering it properly?
