I haven't solved the problem, but I know what the problem isn't. It isn't X11 and Gimp.

I wanted to ensure X11 and an old install of XQuartz was completely removed, and then reinstall X11. But I was unable to find anyone that could give me a definitive answer. So, I came up with a different way to troubleshoot the issue.

I created a new partition on my hard drive, and then installed a new copy of Snow Leopard. Then installed the Gimp .dmg package. And Gimp would run.

I then reinstalled Snow Leopard on my normal boot partition, and then Gimp. Gimp will not run.

I went back to the new partition to double check that Gimp would run, but something had changed the Finder's preferences. The internal drive/partitions were no longer displayed on the desktop.

I also tried another X11 app, Inkscape, with the same results. It runs on the new Snow Leopard install, but not the normal one.

So, there is still some kind of conflict on my normal boot partition, and I'm pondering how attack that problem.
