As I said before, I have a serious problem with the text tool: after selecting it and start typing anything, GIMP closes its windows and exits. Last time I wasn't able to answer every questions:

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?

Freetype 1.3.1, fontconfig 2.2.1
