This is a known GTK+ / themes bug and given that you did all this manually (from .tar.gz) you probably screwed up somewhere and Gimp is running against the old (buggy) code. Turn off BlueSteel. It will stop happening. If you continue to see a problem with a non-pixmap theme (e.g. default GTK+) then get back to us. Otherwise, switch BlueSteel back on then investigate which part of the library install you screwed up. Don't worry, it's not hard to screw up a completely manual install but it isn't hard to track down the problem either. Start by using ldd to determine which libraries Gimp is linked with, and continue from there. Check that you ran ldconfig, the library paths are as expected, and that the 1.2.8 libraries really ended up installed as 1.2.8, and so with the new pixmap theme engine. Nick.
