Update on this issue. 

If I type "dbus-launch <PathToGimp>", gimp launches and the file/open works fine.  Can anyone tell me if dbus was implimented in this new 2.2.17 version, or what exactly dbus does that gimp needs?

Hoping someone can help resolve this problem.  I have done searches of 
archives and web sites without much luck.  I know this version is a 
little old, but I don't have any  control over updating the 
installation.  My problem is related to gimp (2.2.17).  I can start gimp 
from an nfs export with no problems.  I get the GUI, but when I select 
file/open, the application crashes with the following error:

I had the same problem, some GIMP versions (but not others) would
crash when using the File open menu.

I solved it by deleting the appropriate *.so in that GNOME dir.  In
fact I had two similar segfault crashes and moved two *.so.

Here's what got moved:

libtrackerclient.so.0@  libtrackerclient.so.0.0.0

Note that the gstream and other dirs are searched recursively, you
need to move things outside, it is not sufficient to just
mkdir inactive  && mv offender.so inactive/.
in that dir.
