I am using Gimp 2.6.6 on Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy) Linux.  A lot of what we do
starts with acquiring a scan using Xsane from inside Gimp (Create...
Xsane...) [I guess many people would not have Xsane installed].

When the scanned image comes in, as the above poster says, it is behind,
underneath, etc.  I have to go fishing for it.  It is mildly annoying
the first hundred times.  By the 20,000th time (a realistic figure for
us) I think it will be _really_ annoying.
