It seems that the first thing to do is to upgrade to 1.2.3. It may be
that something is broken in 1.2.2, but 1.2.3 is out now. If an upgrade
to 1.2.3 doesn't fix it, please post to this list again and post a bug
1.2.3 is available at ftp://ftp.gimp.org/pub/gimp/v1.2/v1.2.3/ and
should be a pretty easy install.
If you have problems compiling, feel free to come to irc.gimp.org #gimp
and ask for help. carol is working on a howto so can use info on any
problems people encounter.
