Sorry, but that's not true!  If you double-click on the text-icon, you
will get text options.  Choose the Dynamic Text option.  Now your text
will appear in its own layer.  Anytime you click on that layer with the
font tool, you will be able edit your text (just like with a word
processor).  Of course, this is only available in CVS versions of GIMP.
