I having frequent crashes in Gimp 2.6.6, the version distributed by the
Slackware 64 12.2 version.
It seems quite random. In most cases (all except one), the crash happened
while trying to save an image - just before the file dialog appeared. The
exception crashed when the dialog was already visible. First the text
entry box didn't accept text (cursor disappeared when moved over the box).
Then, after a couple of seconds, the crash happened.
I was running gimp in gdb, hoping to do a backtrace, but detected that
Gimp had been compiled without debug info. The text appearing is:
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

The backtrace only showed:

I have used Gimp quite a bit the last days, and only had problems after
using a scaling script (in Guile). Could this be the problem?
