Yes, I noticed that the toolbox has changed with 2.10 two months ago.
There was also a new issue with the gimp-ufraw plugin, forcing the user
to use the standalone ufraw application instead. But Gimp was usable.

Now it is totally unusable for me. A 'ps -ef' shows a gimp process
running but I don't see any windows in any workspace. A 'xwininfo -tree
-root' does not list any Gimp windows. Launching Gimp from a terminal
does not give any error message.
