You can easily write such a plug-in yourself, in case there's really no
way to locate the old one. It should be a trivial plug-in to write for
someone who knows the Windows file-chooser API.

You should investigate this then. It seems rather unlikely that GIMP is
doing something with the file-chooser that could be responsible for
this. What GTK+ version are you using with GIMP and which with gedit?
