Are you perhaps using in your defaultConfig the following?

    , manageHook = myManageHook <+> manageHook defaultConfig

The default manageHook floats Gimp and Mplayer iirc. So for us tiled
Gimp lovers it's probably nicest to just use `manageHook = myManageHook'
and add Mplayer hook to myManageHook if wanted.

As apology for the trouble, some bonus gimp tips including example of
floating tool windows like levels, etc. :      ;-)
