I have been building GIMP and all of the dependent gnome libraries from
their respective repositories (previously svn, now git) at least once a
week without any issues for over a year.  I believe my development
environment is stable.

I know for sure that the problem I am experiencing is a result of
changes from gtk+ 2.17.2 to 2.17.3.  Unfortunately I do not have it
isolated to a particular commit.
