Is there a way to make the toolbox disappear, when all image windows
were sent to the taskbar? Or send the toolbox to the taskbar as well?

Since the change of the toolbox being a add-on to the image-window
instead of being the application-window (like in earlier times) the
toolbox remains visible on the desktop.

Thanks,
Michael

I'd like to know how you are doing that, Frank. I'm using 2.6.3 on a
slackware 12 box, and I cannot minimize the toolbox: there is no minimize
icon, and when I right click the title bar, Minimize is grayed out.

You must restart Gimp for the 'minimize' button to appear in the toolbox.
