I wonder which ISO , or other, standard you think PSD files 
conform to... They are simply the native file format of Adobe 
Photoshop. You should not be using them as the "standard" format 
for GIMP, since it has its own native format, XCF. Try using it 
instead of PSD and see if GIMP's stability issues disappear.
