With some help from Jernej I have now been able too look into this
problem. It would be of great help if people with crashes when doing:
1. Start GIMP
2. Create new default image
3. Tools -> GEGL Operation...
could try to move
C:\Program Files (x86)\GIMP-2.0\lib\gegl-0.0\load-buffer.dll
into a temporary dir, just so that GEGL does not pick up load-buffer.dll
On my tests on Vista SP2, removing this GEGL operation from the
operations GEGL loads gets rid of this particular crash, and I suspect
this will get rid of this particular crash on XP systems as well.
If anyone is able to confirm that removing/moving load-buffer.dll fixes
the above crash, please let me know and report what version of Windows
you are using.
