Consider putting the GIMP in a separate virtual desktop. If you are not
familiar with virtual desktops, which are supported in most desktop
environments, start by opening a "pager" or adding one to your panel.

I'm afraid I don't know the Deweirdifyer plugin. I imagine it is a plug-in
for one particular graphical application.

See comments below.

This depends on one's settings, which is a fact worth raising. I believe that
windows are grouped by default though (in latter versions of KDE).

The GIMP can be a handful if similar windows are not joined together under
the same heading. In GNOME, handling several related windows can be tough,
whereas in KDE you could open a context menu over the grouped active
application (in the task bar) and then choose "Restore all".

Hope it helps,
