That one bugs me too and I am very tempted to file it as a bug, because "select item to move" is the default setting for the Move tool.  You can, however, activate the Shift modifier and then move the layer group as a single unit.

On the subject of groups versus individual grouped items, I really like the way Inkscape handles it:
- Normal click selects single items relative to the current context (parent layer/group).  If the clicked item is in a group, the group itself reacts.
- Ctrl+click bypasses groups and selects individual items whether they are grouped or not.

Though of course Inkscape's behavior isn't necessarily applicable to GIMP....
