I uninstalled GIMP. Found older versions here, and went with the most recent one that works for me: http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/old.html
I may have jumped to conclusions about the automatic update (I hope!). Apparently I hadn't yet used the program on the new computer I'm on, and confused it with the last time I used an older version on my old computer. That's a relief at least.
But I'm still appalled by the changes that only make the program more complicated than it already is, and the entire interface is much too cluttered, and really unattractive. Not what I want to see when I'm doing my own art.
And please developers, consider a forum where we can subscribe only to the thread that's relevant to our problem. I'm going to unsubscribe from this listserve now, since I figured out how to fix this myself.
