GIMP is now receiving the synthetic drop, but obviously there's more to it. Have to figure out how to pass the data with the drop. This is a nice way of learning a few things about X that I could safely ignore so far thanks to GTK+/GDK. But then I hope that Owen shows up on #gimp and just tells me how to do it correctly.
Nick tried to start another flame-war on the mailing-list and I couldn't resist to answer his mail. Well, it was just too provocant. If he's too stupid to recompile GIMP properly, why can't he just ask?!
