Well OK ... perfect hit, guys!
You see it is a tool I use very infrequently.
- current behaviour of the fill and stroke editor is imho
contra-intuitive as when selecting gradients and modifying them in
this dialog, I expect Inkscape to switch to the gradient tool (when
dropping the old editor, this problem should be gone, no?)
- the gradient tool is not discussed in the tutorials delivered along
with inkscape. For such an important tool I (and quite probably a
novice user) expect an example or discussion in one of these tutorials

Yes you're overlooking something... that you're not in the right tool.
;) Hit G to change to the gradient tool (or click the expansion arrow
in the toolbox and change that way).
