I'm using XSane to scan images in to GIMP 2.8.16. With the scan settings, this unfortunately takes a few minutes per scan. I'm using GIMP's tabbed window mode.
It's nice that I can work on other things while it's scanning (including in GIMP). But, whenever a scan finishes, GIMP not only activates that new tab (including even if I'm in the middle of rotating or cropping a different image), but if GIMP is not the foreground window, it raises itself. If it's iconified, it uniconifies itself. If it's on a different desktop, it switches me to it's desktop.
I've searched its Preferences and couldn't find anything—is there a way to make GIMP load new images into a background tab and, even more importantly, not interrupt what I'm doing in other apps?
