Alrighty, Kaspersky answered and they said it's a known bug and they
are working on it. A fix won't be out soon though, they said.
They recommend downgrading to the 2013 version until it's fixed.
So I guess a little note on the download page would be appropriate now
I guess.

Just keep in mind, Kaspersky's product is only one of apparently multiple that
cause this problem.  I still haven't found what is causing it on my system (I've
never installed Kaspersky's product).  So I still think this needs to be
addressed by the GIMP team, or whoever is responsible for the common UI used by
GIMP and other programs like Inkscape, as that seems to be where the
incompatibility lies.

Well yes someone could look into this. Now I believe that's a
Windows-only problem, right? So we come back to our problem of lack of
Windows developers. Also there is not technically a bug here, so that
makes it less urgent compared to other bigger bugs. Don't make me
wrong, there is obviously a problem. But that only happens because
some other programs are apparently messing with system events. And
they reckon also that that's a bug on their side, as showed
Kaspersky's answer.

So on our side, that's more of a "bypassing other program's bug"
issue. Well it would still be good if someone did it. :-) And we are
aware of it and don't intend on putting all the blame on others.
But I just wanted to relativize the issue and why the chances of it
being improved in a fast way by any of the GIMP developers are slim.
But we welcome developers wanting to help faster on this, come on, we
don't bite! :-)

Also I asked somewhere but didn't get any answer: does anyone who have
the problem also have other GTK+ programs? And if so, do you also have
the problem on the other GTK+ programs?
This information is important as it could help us to target more
efficiently if the issue comes from GIMP or GTK+ code.
