I have seen this similar bug in Liferea very long time ago, but Liferea  
developer has fixed those weird 'ghost' bugs by a major clean up the  
drag-n-drop code, memory freed, pointers and etc. So, I think it's more  
like GIMP bug rather than in GNOME desktop. You might want to check in  
GIMP bugzilla, if there is nothing then you can go ahead report over there.
