- due to rounding, I assume, you have to click several times
  until the current pixel gets black.

Yes, if you use the brush tool, and don't align the brush to the grid. 

 But for this task, you'd use a 1 pixel brush (that's most non-animated 
brushes if you set the size to 1), the pencil tool, and pure black and 
white as described above.

That is the difference between Pencil and Paintbrush -- the Pencil tool is aligned on pixel boundaries while 
the Paintbrush is not (it interpolates/antialiases).  For other tools (like selections or bucket-fill) you 
have to enable "hard edge" mode and/or disable "anti-aliasing" in the tool options.  GIMP also has a "Pixel" 
brush which is specifically square and as long as the brush size is an integer it works perfectly with the 
Pencil tool for painting individual pixels.  (Just make sure to verify the brush size first.)
