I resolved my problem by deleting the hidden directory
This directory, that contains gimp settings, is not deleted when
uninstalling gimp. A new installation uses it.
That's interesting if you install a new version, but, if it contains an
error, this error persists in all new installations.
GIMP re-creates this directory on starting again.
