I suggest you update your macports (selfupdate) and sync your ports
and install the gimp2 port. I am running gimp 2.4.1 from macports (via
the gimp2 port) and all is well. Also, you will probably need to
update your X11 - see here: http://www.x.org/wiki/XDarwin
The latest version is 1.2a11. Ben Byer (XDarwin developer) has been
doing terrific work getting things improved for us :) Lastly, if you
don't mind the extra inbox items you might want to subscribe to the
x11-users list (somewhere on lists.apple.com there ought to be a link)
Good luck and happy GIMPing :)
