Regression: Gimp has no progressbar

Status in The GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP): Fix Released
Status in “gimp” package in Ubuntu: Triaged
Status in “gimp” source package in Lucid: Triaged

Bug description:
-- Lucid SRU report follows --

Impact: A common and visible part of GIMP's UI has disappeared due to Lucid's switch to gtk 2.19. This will cause confusion for new GIMP users (the UI won't match tutorials) as well as existing users.

The bug has been fixed upstream, with new code for the gtk 2.19 case.

Patch: http://launchpadlibrarian.net/45887889/gimp_2.6.8-2ubuntu1.1.debdiff

To reproduce: open any image and look at the bottom of the image window. If there's nothing there, you're seeing the bug. There should be a units menu (e.g. px), a zoom menu (e.g. 100%) and the regular progress area (probably showing the name of the current layer). See http://docs.gimp.org/2.6/en/images/using/imagewindow-description.png

Regression potential: should be low risk, since the code has been in the gimp trunk for a few weeks, and the alternative is the current broken status bar.

Binary package hint: gimp

Gimp has lost his Progressbar within the Statusfield that showed the progress of filters or saving files. This is extremly nasty, the reasons are obvious.
