I donīt understand this conclusion.. Do you mean the "top" (or the
baseline) of the two text layers doesnīt match, or do you mean that the
baselines agree while the layers are sized differently?

Yes, you could use Gimp->text_get_extents to get the position of the
baseline, and the maximum size (measure XygjZ79 or something similar to be
sure ;) then you can resize the layer after it was created.

Donīt ask me for details, you have to play around a bit. (btw, if you
happen to write a sub like gimp_text_ext_iso (...) to do this I can
include it in Gimp::Util).
