You might want to check the color depth of your document. If it's 
indexed color then the document may not be able to create smooth 
gradients because their aren't enough colors in the pallet. You can tell 
if this is the problem (on 2.6.8) by going through the menus to 
image->mode->... If image->mode->indexed is selected then the document 
is indexed color, and you should change it to image->mode->RGB.
