I have used Gimp 2.4 (beta candidate) on my Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon install and
this morning upgraded my Windows XP install from 2.2 to 2.4.
When I access the Script-Fu menu and move the mouse pointer down to select a
script, Gimp dies an inglorious death. "gimp-2.4.exe has encountered a
problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."
To test, I deleted all the user scripts except one that works on the Ubuntu
install. This also causes a crash.
I am not running a script, I am merely highlighting a menu item.
I did not uninstall v2.2, thinking that the installer would detect the
existing program and update it or delete it if necessary. Could this be the
