Where are you experts???  We are two at minimum discovering this behaviour
and if it's a misconfiguration it has to be described somewhere.

Because there was a suggestion that xfree86-3.3.5 can be the reason, I
upgraded to 3.3.6 but nothing changes.  The new text layer is a small
rectangle in the upper left corner ...

For testing I have also removed my ~/.gimp-1.1 (nice startup wizard!) but
no effect ...
