Thanks, I might try that, although I suspect I'll have trouble getting the family to accept a tiling WM.  Xfwm seems to handle them properly too, so if I don't find something else I may end up using it.

I've found Openbox almost works properly, except that the utility windows
stay above the file open and save dialogues.  Does anyone know if this is a
window manager problem or just a Gimp bug or a GTK bug or something else?
Are there any other lightweight window managers that support utility

I use AwesomeWM, which treats GIMP's utility windows correctly.
