I am aware of the GNOME applet (but that doesn't seem to capture a window) and
of GIMP (which doesn't completely meet my needs either).

What bothers me is that I thought I had that ability in the woody installation
which I 'upgraded'  to sarge, getting GNOME 2.x!

GNOME 2.8 has "Take Screenshot..." right on the drop-down "Foot"

After you've taken the screenshot, edit it GIMP to pull out only
the window you want.

Now, a "windowshot" utility would be so useful...

As Kent West said, use imagemagick's 'import', it'll grab either a random selection (click and drag a selection box), the whole screen (import -window root outfile.jpg), or a single window (focus the window after you run import)
