Menu only visible when Image window/panel active

Bug Description

When working gimp, the main menu is only visible if the window containing the image is active. This means, that if you do something in the layerpanel/window, the main menu of gimp is inactive in the topbar. This makes working with gimp very very unproductive, cause you constantly have to click in the main window to do any actual work. Doing something that has a dialogue window, produces the same result. Scale a layer, the dialogue comes up, you confirm or cancel the action and your main menu is gone and you have to click/activate the main winow again.

Since the Toolbox panel/winow, the LayersChannelsPaths panel/window and the main Image panel/window are part of gimp and your actual workflow, there is no sane reason why the main menu should hide if you click/activate any panel or window other than the actual image.
