To get some details into the game - a while ago (just after 2.2 was
released), I tried upgrading to 2.6 (I thought that 2.6 was required,
but this doesn't matter here). I ended up with a system where

- gdm crashed (I was unable to get any useful error message - logging
  seems to be broken with regard to this, strace did not help)
- GIMP 2.2 crashed almost every time I opened the file selector with some
  strange pango message showing up (some assertion failed) - it seems
  that font handling has somehow changed (I did compile a new pango,
  but not a new freetype)
  I found an obscure way to prevent this crash, but I cannot remember 
  anymore - it was not really stable either.
- OpenOffice stopped working with some unresolved symbol

I straced a lot but got no real conclusion (apart from that the new file
selector opens a lot of files which probably kills performance on
networked file systems).

I can give it a try tomorrow and see whether I get some useful error
messages. (My earlier message to this list describing my problems has
somehow been ignored, there might be some details in there.)

Bye, Tino.
