I'm curious to know what "image parade" will look like!

If the tabs principle is going to be replaced, then maybe it's useless
to discuss much about it even now. But I guess that when Gimp 2.8 will
be released and between hands of users (including new users, potentially
attracted by the new features and the new single-window mode), you
might be harassed by requests about tabs management ;-) and see how
people can open several documents.

Back to what could be fixed:

- open Gimp 2.7.x
- open an image
- fill to window
- make a rectangle selection that includes nearly all the image
- open another image
- get back to the former one, now you don't see the whole selection
  rectangle, some part of it is out of sight

This is an issue, to me. Minor, of course!
