The simple hack/solution is to copy intl.dll from the bin folder to the 
plug-ins folder. For my installation, here are the two paths.

Copy from: C:\Program Files (x86)\GIMP-2.0\bin\intl.dll
Copy to:  C:\Program Files (x86)\GIMP-2.0\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins\intl.dll

I did this and didn't get the startup errors I was seeing before
