true, it is a little inconvenient. after you call gimp from scribus,
edit the picture and close the picture, scribus doesn't accept any input
until gimp itself is closed. it would be a lot more convenient if gimp
can remain in the background and open new images from scribus in new
windows. that is, of course, purely from a user's point of view. :)
wouldn't know how tough or easy it would be to make it work like that.
