opening several images from the context menu is imho no good idea. if 
you want to edit several images it's better to open them from gimp: that 
way you have a better control on what is open and what not (the bytes 
are exactly the same, but your brain will be working differently).

for the error: if i recall corretly, it's a bug related to some 
operating systems (and has already been reported to the bug report 
system): basically, scribus does support sending images to an open 
instance of gimp.
