I tried it with GIMP 2.4.5: Here, the dialog opens nicely in front of
the image window, and the WinOpen menu option is available if an image
is open OR gimp has just been started (i.e. it's only disabled if an
image has been opened and closed).

So, it works perfecly fine for me. :-)

Thanks. The source code is not included in the above download link,
but there's a text file containing the author's contact info, so if
anyone is interested in taking over maintainance of that plug-in, it
shouldn't be difficult to get the source (might be easier than
starting from scratch).
