Thank You! This is so awesome. :) I've always wondered how to do stuff like that, and now I finally know.

You're probably already aware of this, but for those with little GIMP experience, you can change the length of each frame from the default (somewhere around 100ms) by editing the layer attributes. Just double click on the name of the layer in the layers dialog, and change the name of each layer to "frame 1(1000ms)" and then insert whatever name you want behind the close parens. The image explains it better than I can.
