Thanks David,

That did the trick.  But...

a) Now I have yet another window on my desktop whenever I run Gimp.  Is
there any way to "hide" it?

b) Is there any way to simply tell gimp to ignore these particular error

c) Are these really proper error messages?  What exactly is it
complaining about and why?  Are the files that Photoshop created
defective in some way?  Or have the standards changed?
