So I'm not sure what's going on here.

While I was on F19, I had quite a few problems with GIMP, specifically with exporting images.

After an upgrade to F20, the issues went away for a little, but have returned, only this time different.

Gimp will constantly close despite what I do, usually it closes after starting (the moment I move my cursor), other times I'll try to save an image only to close (rather than my previous export bug which just froze it).

I have reinstalled plenty of times and I've cleared it's folder in .config.

Here is what happens in the terminal when I open gimp, open an image and choose to export it as png.

jake@hackur ~$ gimp

(script-fu:3832): LibGimpBase-WARNING **: script-fu: gimp_wire_read(): error

I can't reproduce the random closure when opening from the terminal (e.g. closing after moving the cursor).

Could anyone offer some advice please, maybe I'm missing some dependencies?

Upon inspection

It /appears/ reverting to the default Adwaita gtk theme solves the issue, but is this unsolvable when using any other theme? I have a few themes installed, but all reproduce the issue except for default.

I installed gtk2-engines which seems to have fixed the gtk-warnings though.
