Won't be for awhile, but I'll give it a shot.
It only seems to happen when I follow a certain pattern, and by then, I've
spent 10-20 minutes in the step before, and don't remember exactly the steps
I've taken, since it's mostly touch-up work for models. Lots of
Cloning-Healing-Layer Masking in different orders. Makes it very difficult to
file a bug. Mostly wanted to see if anyone had had a similar situation crop
up. I know it's a bug, or unintended consequence of how I am trying to draw
on a layer that Gimp thinks exists but isn't shown, but it might take awhile
to nail down.
