I was actually just about to make this thread, but mine doesn't crash after you load it. Mine seg faults after attempting to type in text (after opening the "Insert Text" tool and then attempting to type in text).
At first I thought it was because I had UTF-8 enabled, but then I disabled it, re-logged in, (and just to double check, even rebooted) and it still crashed when I try to type in text with the "Insert Text" tool:
(gimp:23268): Gdk-WARNING **: gdkdrawable-x11.c:874 drawable is not a pixmap or window
