Wel, I progress.

With text layers, GEGL and Legacy Drop Shadow filters work the same.

With images, to get, with the GEGL filter, the same effect as the Legacy
filter, I must use a complex procedure:

- Open the original image

- Open a transparent image a little bigger than the original image.

- Copy-paste the original image into the transparent image.

- This creates a floating selection. Anchor the floating selection.

- Apply GEGL Drop Shadow.

VoilĂ .

I did:

- Open the original image

- If not present add an alfa channel

- Select the object you want to drop a shadow

- Invert the selection

- Cut the selection

- Past the selection into another layer

- Put that layer as the bottom layer

- Select the first/object layer

- Remove any selection

- Drop the shadow
