Wouldn't it work to have it appear centered over the layers dialog?
That's what should happen generally, if the dialog is popped up from

(BTW the Gimp "dialogs" like the layers dialog are not really dialogs
at all - they are "utility" windows in Mac Classic terms. They need to
be treated differently from dialogs.)
