On the Mac, it now goes GIMP > Protimeseis > Diepaphe > Glossa > [en_(GB)], (ιe,

There was no ~/.gimp file, so I created an empty .gimp folder, in the hope that
the above sequence would inspire creation of a configuration file. This has not
happened, and GIMP stays in Greek after restart, with [en_(GB)] still selected.
locate .gimp  turned up no other .gimp file stored elsewhere.
