I use The Gimp (Gnu Image Manipulation Program) to work on PNG, GIF, JPEG,
etc. screen dumps to include in user documentation developed in FrameMaker.

In FrameMaker, you can double-click on a graphic imported by reference to
invoke the default graphics program.  When I double-click a PNG screen
dump, The Gimp launches as expected and opens the original PNG file.  Since
this graphic is to be edited to create a different version, my first act is
to save it under a different name by right-clicking and choosing File >
Save As from the context menu.

However, the menus disappear, leaving grey rectangles where they overlapped
the graphic, and The Gimp freezes.  Eventually, I can kill the gimp.exe
process from the Windows 2000 task manager, but it sure doesn't want to

Any ideas why The Gimp is freezing?
