And guess what, it fixes all GIMP bugs too!. After all, GIMP is part
of GNOME, so if you don't install GNOME, there won't be GIMP, so
there won't be any GIMP bugs! Yay!
Seriously, you've made your point on free software and free OSes. I

fine, but this is a technical mailinglist, and as such not an
appropriate place to do so.
