It would probably help to start gimp from an xterm (or whatever terminal emulator you prefer) and check if there's any output on the console.
The output is the following:

I guess that your problem is a somewhat broken font that causes
problems with the libraries that handle fonts for GIMP. Does this
happen with whatever font you choose?
I haven't tried all, beacause I have about 300 fonts installed, but it seems to be the case.
What versions of freetype and fontconfig are you using?
How could I find this out? (Sorry for being so amateur, but I switched to Linux only three months ago.)
