Yes. However, the number of platforms and machines where gnome is
installed is still very small.

It works for the 242 subscribers to the gimp-perl users list. Not a large
number by absolute means, but it shows that it can't be that bad...

However, since you are obviously not interested in helping the
develiopment, wehy don't you just keep quiet? This is just anti-social,
and you know that.

I'd say it's definitely a bug if this would be the case. However, if
people forget to run ldconfig or install more than one gimp/gtk version in
the same prefix I would not count this "reasonable".

gimphelp will not work on _any_ system that has no gnome. That's
independent of age.
