I'm not actually running Gnome 2, I only have the libraries required to
compile Gimp 1.3. Should I then just be filing the report against gtk+2?

Yes they do look the same. I have added some g_print() statements in the
code and the config file is being parsed for the temp file location but
the value is being lost somewhere. Can you suggest any good places to
put some g_prints to see what is going on?
Here is some sample output:-

[root@mike bin]# ./gimp-1.3
using MMX: yes
swapfile is: /big/tmp/gimpswap.30852
swap add filename: /big/tmp/gimpswap.30852/n[Invalid UTF-8]
swapfile is still: (ąg@(ąg@/gimpswap.30852

so it is being parsed ok if, you ignore my errors, but there is no error 
to say why the file is not being created in the suggested location.

p.s. if I turn on conservative memory usage then it does create a few 
smaller temp files, but still no big one.
