I absolutely /hate/ the single window mode. I loved being able to float
toolboxes and have the image editing area closable separate of the main
program when I'm not using it (but will go back to using GIMP soon).
It's one of the features (aside from being free) that first attracted me
to The GIMP. Losing that flexibility is a pain in my rear.

I generally give GIMP it's own desktop. Solves that problem rather well.
