The fix will be in 2.8.4, which will be released when it will be released :)
So as the above shows the bug is known and will be fixed but no known release
As I said previously, I'm sure it would be fine if I reinstalled GIMP 2.6 but
for my lack of persistence and knowledge with Linux that isn't happening right
now. Just a bit disappointed with the product. And, yes, I realise I that I
didn't pay anything for it.
I posted a full description of the problem in the appropriate areas however
screen shots depicting the problem were not allowed to be uploaded due to site
rules (karma, points, status, etc).
I posted the original message to let it be known that while, for some, it might
be suitable to let a small feature of the program break down, others like myself
use it on a regular basis even if it is for something as unexciting as creating
advertising for a small business.
I will return to GIMP at some point in the future when the feature I use is up
and running again or I get another machine to install 2.6 on. Regardless there
is still Inkscape and the forced change is allowing me to learn more about its
