GIMP doesn't play nice with unity and gnome globalmenu

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gimp

Correct behavior: menu is visible in top panel regardless of which GIMP window is in focus.

Because not everyone uses a globalmenu, this may have to be a toggle added to GIMP.
This is a requisite for replacing PS + OS X with GIMP + Ubuntu. (Although I have been getting by with focus-on-hover set in compiz, I'm not the average graphic designer, and it's still very annoying.)

The /correct/ correct behavior would be for GIMP to handle dialogs like Inkscape, but that's probably not going to happen very soon.
