Good ;) However, it seems that scripts converted from script-fu to perl
have a large tendency to crash the gimp (yes, in ever unpredictable ways).

The layers dialog was (is?) pretty much broken at some days ;) This is
probbaly being fixed soon.

Well spotted... Actually, this seems to be a bug in the sota-chrome
script-fu, which specifies a page size of 2 (and the rand is only 0 to
1). I have no idea why script-fu isn'T affected by this (maybe it just
ignores the pagesize).

gimp_selection_shrink expects an integer, and 0.51 == 0 in that domain. As
I already said earlier, however, I think that shrinking a selection by
zero pixels is a very valid operation. I'll look into that.

In the meantime, your bug-report has vastly improved ;-> Only the case b)
seems to be "the script-fu bug" itself.

Glossy will not work until script-fu is fixed (there are, I think one or
two others who depend on script-fu as well). I don't believe in script-fu
getting fixed before 1.2, though.
