gimp-2.2 is picking up the libraries from gimp-2.3. That is exactly why
the release notes ask you to install into a separate prefix which is not
in your library search path. Just make sure that 2.2 isn't started with
a library search path that includes the location where you installed

Because the version number is in the library. You also would want your
plug-ins to use ~/.gimp-2.3 when you are running gimp-2.3. Even plug-ins
that were compiled against an older version of the gimp libraries.
