Looking at your screenshot (btw - hell of a toolbar). Is this not a re-hash of the old deweirdifyer plugin. It has been resurrected at the portable apps sitehttp://portableapps.com/apps/graphics_pictures/gimp_portable/background_window
works equally well (or not) with a regular installation.
Had a look at the python script for a non-ubuntu (pclos 2011) machine. Fell at the first hurdle, no python-wnck package in the repo.
Not a problem as I find consolidating the tools and dialogs into one a good option.
I have recently compiled gimp 2.7 for my pclos installation, don't really find the single window mode much of an improvment however, I was amazed that gimp 2.7 imported all of my gimp 2.6 settings automatically.

Rich. (Windows only i believe)
Normally Gimp will take any user gimp-2.6 folder and copy everything to a new gimp-2.7 folder including rc files.
I created my own 2.7 folder then installed 2.7.3 because i know some of the scripts are too deprecated to run in 2.7's new interface.Themes will not work either they make things vanish into thin air.
- Once you create the 2.7 folder Gimp will use it instead.
But back on subject i know of no other single window mode than 2.7 that actually works somewhat.
Gerard is Gimpbox's only flavor in Linux version or is it just one executable Python script?Maybe i can test in Windows?
Gimp-2.8 should be out by October-November this year and single window mode should be a user option in that version.(hopefully it will retain its window setting), as the only thing i find wrong with it is the setting isn't established in the gimprc (preferences) file.I never did try writing it in manually that may work.
