Subject: gimp: Gimp doesn't start: segmentation fault
Package: gimp
Version: 2.6.11-1
Severity: normal

When I launch gimp from a terminal, I get this error:

ernesto@Debook:~$ gimp
(gimp:3593): GLib-WARNING **: /build/buildd-
ignoring no-
arg, optional-arg or filename flags (8) on option of type 0
Segmentation fault

And it doesn't start.
