I am on Windows XP Pro SP3 and I know of 2 ways to start GIMP: either 
doubleclick the GIMP-icon on the desktop or the gimp-2.6.exe file. How to set 
beforehand the GIMP_DEBUG environment variable is way beyond my knowledge.

But nevertheless, I meanwhile found out that I have (a lot of) personal 
GIMP-files, and where they are:


This fortunate discovery, I hope, will help me a lot to better understand GIMP. 
Below is a line actually copied from my own "gimprc"-file:

 (help-locales "en")

Perhaps it would have been orthodox to change this "en" to "nl". But 
nevertheless my non-standard trick did the job? The "HELP"-buttons and the 
F1-key do show me the help I ask. From my locally installed html-base:

C:\Program Files\GIMP-2.0\share\gimp\2.0\help\en 


As far as I am concerned this case seems closed. Thanks for the help.
