 It's a long standing bug in Gimp. I would really like to change the name

 I don't blame them, and I wouldn't volunteer to re-write its hairy

Oh, you better would have whined louder and submitted a bug-report. 
I just stumpled across this issue by accident and added a few checks
for NULL pointers after 1.2.0 was out. 1.2.1 should behave better 
because of this, but I'm sure the problem wouldn't have existed in
1.2.0 if there would have been a proper bug-report earlier.

A quick test (creating a copy of one plug-in in the plug-in path) makes
me think that the problem is fixed in the current gimp-1-2 branch in 
CVS, but it would be nice if people could test it a little more. 


Salut, Sven

To Whom It May Concern, 

 I am a 3D animation student attempting to use your Win version of 
Gimp. I have used it in the past with Linux and love the program. I have 
installed about 4 times now, and keep running into the same error. Can you 
please help me???
 Below is the error message i get, if there is a quick resolve to this 
problem then please direct me to the proper online documentation, otherwise 
if this is an unknown problem then i hope that this has now been brought to 
your attention.

Remove either tiff_nolzw.exe of tiff.exe from your GIMP plug-ins
directory. This is explained, perhaps a bit vaguely, on
www.gimp.org/win32/ .

(No, I don't know why duplicate PDB procedures cause strange errors
and not just warnings. Anyway, GIMP seems to handle this situation
better in the current gimp-1-2.)
