Main Gimp window looses focus every time an option is used

Bug #1033219 reported by Pablo Piaggio on 2012-08-05

gimp (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

In order to use the Gimp menu, the main window has to be selected.

However, after running almost any option from the menu, the focus does not return the main window but changes aleatory to one of the other windows (either Toolbox or Layers).

Those windows do not have menus, so you neither can use Alt+ to get to the menus nor take advantage of the HUD.

I could say that this happens with any option that launch a dialog window. For instance:

Color -> Hue-Saturation
Filter -> Blur -> Gaussian Blur

This also happens when you switch to another workspace and come back.

I appreciate your time to review this bug.
Kind Regards.

This bad behaviour makes Gimp a pain to work with on Ubuntu 12.04. Toolbox gets focus after doing an image operation and global menu disappears..
