A little bird gave me the solution to this problem.
You have to make the tmp directory as gimp install isn't doing this at
the moment. See where the path to the file is via Preferences
-->Directories and make one there.
I fixed mine with "mkdir .gimp-1.2/tmp" from within my home directory.
This should also solve a jpeg preview error message.
Sounds like it will be fixed for 1.2.3.
