Thanks for the info. Someone told me about a text-along-path-0.2.py plug-in
that you can obtain here:
I installed this and it works. With this, you create/select a target path
and then from the Paths dialog, right-click and find it under the Tools
section at the bottom of the context menu. This is another suggested
workaround until the built-in functionality is fixed.

Turns out they are now context-sensitive and are found by right-clicking on the
text box itself, right-clicking on the text layer on the Layers dialog, or on
the Layers pull-down menu when the Text tool is selected.
Thanks for the help.
