Which operating system do you use? Why don't you just go to "Downloads" and download GIMP 2.6.2

no, thats not a bug - its a feature. you can simply hide/unhide the toolboxes by usign the TAB-key.

By the way I've just installed GIMP 2.6.2 in Windows and I've noticed some changes in how GIMP manages the windows (tools, main and layers) it seems that the main window is always behind the tools and layers windows. I think the main window should be at the top always, so I hope that could be fixed.
