I verified the crashes with the Fedora 10 version of Gimp 2.6.3.

The Fedora version does not use the poppler plugin for PDF import,
although it mentions poppler-devel with the build requirements. It
uses a ghostscipt plugin instead. This plugin crashes on specific

It turns out to be a missing requirement. The build needs
poppler-devel AND poppler-glib-devel. The latter is not listed
with the build requirements.

I'll file a bug report with Fedora, and rebuild my kits.

Thanks for pointing me into the right direction.
