That will be difficult to debug. It looks like a broken font but it could as well be a different problem. Do you have some experience using a debugger?
I have used GDB once before, but it was under the instruction of the developer. SO essentially I have no experience with it.
You would also need versions of glib,
 pango and gimp
with debugging symbols.

I'm using the gimp.app package from gimp-app.sf.net, how do i apply your suggestion?

You could then use the --g-fatal-warnings
command-line option and force gimp to crash on the first critical
warning. Using the debugger you could then tell us more precisely
what's going on here.

Since the error is in pango it seems, it might be worth it to note
that I am using pango 1.4.0 I will attempt to update to 1.4.1.

My guess is that the problem is not in Pango but in the FreeType library. What's the version of FreeType that you are using?

% > /usr/X11R6/bin/freetype-config --version 9.0.3 % > /usr/bin/freetype-config --version 9.4.3

there are also a bunch of .h files in */include/freetype2
and i just successfully emerged freetype-2.1.5-r1
