You ignored the warning in the release notes that ask you to install
the development version in a separate prefix that is not part of the
system library search path. Or perhaps the release notes need to be
improved to make it more clear that gimp-2.2 will start to use the
gimp-2.3 libraries if these are installed in /usr/local/lib and
/usr/local/lib is in the library search path before /usr/lib.
