I see the problem which appears to be related to the focus policy. I use
Focus Strictly Under Mouse.
When that little window that is the actual application window for The GIMP
opens, if the mouse button is where it opens, then it gets focus and the
rest of the windows for The GIMP will open. Otherwise they don't. So, the
only solution for The GIMP is to turn it off.
The same thing happens when you do something that results in another window
opening in The GIMP. If it doesn't have focus, then the new window doesn't
However, if I choose: Focus Follows Mouse, all of the windows for The GIMP
open even though the main window doesn't get focus.
Clearly this is a bug.
