Thanks, Tommy. I’m the person who wrote that.

That pertains to https://launchpad.net/bugs/1759625 which is a separate bug.

I hope that helps explain the reasoning.

'Among those applications upgraded in this release is GIMP 2.10, which saw its release shortly before the release of Ubuntu Studio 18.04. Due to a library conflict between GIMP 2.10 and MyPaint, we had to make the hard decision to drop MyPaint from the default installation of Ubuntu Studio beginning in 18.10, citing other tools, such as Krita, as filling a similar role in graphical art production. As such, if both are installed and you wish to upgrade to Ubuntu Studio 18.10, you must uninstall GIMP or MyPaint for the upgrade to be successful.'

I appreciate your tenacity, but this seems like stuff that belongs in a bug report.

When I wanted to start testing GIMP a few seconds later, I needed to push Ctrl+Alt+some F key and then Ctrl+Alt+F7 to get back the desktop. Just pushing keys, moving the mouse with and without turning off and on the display didn't work.

During a test with just a single layer, without copy and paste, just using a few tools, it did _not_ crash. I don't know if its stable, it's to time consuming to continue testing. It at least didn't crash during a not so hard test.

The grid doesn't work correctly, it requires to close and open GIMP again to get new grid settings. This is what I experienced when using it on Arch Linux, too.

With single window mode disabled, it's needed to select "always on to" by the dock windows each time GIMP is opened. This might be related to the DE. IIRC on Arch Linux with openbox I don't need to do it, the GIMP dock windows automatically stay on top.
