I get the error when, with an image opened in gimp, I click tools, select,
rectselect. Nothing happens in the image window but the error appears in my
terminal window at that moment. I can continue in gimp doing other operations with
the image. Only when I quit gimp do I actually see the error message(s). To my
knowledge I was not attempting to save the image as a text file or do any kind
of save. My image file is a JPEG and for my purposes of cropping, resizing etc
I dont make use of layers. I am happy to use my gimp as it is unless other signs of
flakiness turn up. However I would love to know if my suggestion re cropping
has a chance of being realized in a later release.
