The problems are coming in the gtk library, so you will probably need to
debug things there.  Your best bet is to recompile glib and gtk+ with
debugging, and then disable the signal handlers in the gimp (comment them
out, so it doesn't try catch SEGV) and recompile gimp with debugging, and
then run the gimp under a debugger (assuming you can find a debugger that
works on 4.3.3).

Note that recent development versions of the gimp also exhibit gtk+ problems
on AIX.  Whether that's because of a bug in gtk+ or a bug in AIX is unknown
at this point.
