There is a a couple known bugs in SuSE dealing with JPEGs.  I can't imagine
that being the problem since you are going to save this as a XCF so you keep
your layer support, but SuSE updates for the JPEG libraries might still be
worth looking into.

I'm sorry you feel that way.  Since we are using anecdotal evidence, I
haven't seen GIMP crash in quite some time, and I use it to do some pretty
funky stuff on Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux.  Whenever I have asked for help,

don't do any prepress work, so I'm not much help there.  My specialties
lie more with image formats, GIS, and machine vision.
