GIMP closes on its own

Question GIMP closes on its own
This never used to happen and it's very frustrating. If I save an image I'm working on, GIMP closes on me. It's merely annoying if I save as an xcf. If I forgot to do that first (I try not to, but it happens), I have only that final image, which usually isn't the only one I wanted.

Today I was cropping photos for various closeups. I copied and saved a selection I wanted to a new image and saved as a jpg, then both the old and new image closed. I then opened two photos in separate images. Cropped one, saved it and it was okay. Undid the cropping and cropped another section and saved it and Poof! Gone again along with the other photo that I had not touched, yet.

When I used GIMP in Windows it never did this. I'm now using Ubuntu and it is almost always doing this. I was under the impression that GIMP and Ubuntu worked well together. This is not what I'd call working together well.

What do I need to do to fix this problem? I have checked my settings, reset them, returned them to default, put them back to my preferences, all to no avail. Size of the image seems to make no difference as it happens to small kilo images as well as multi gig images.

TIA

RE: GIMP closes on its own
I have been using Gimp in Ubuntu for the last two years without any such problem...

What version of Ubuntu? What version of Gimp (is it the one form the repository for your Ubuntu version?)?

You can also start Gimp from a bash prompt. You may see error messages there, including something that may tell you why it quits.

RE: GIMP closes on its own
I'm getting the same thing - closes when I save a file. Just passing this on in case it helps. The messages are as follows, and the directory does exist:

-----------------------------------------------------------------

It doesn't really help to post this here. Reporting on bugzilla.gnome.org wouldgive it a chance to be seen by the Gimp developers. But you'll still have to state OS version, Gimp version/build, and, given the problem, GTK lib version (libgtk2.0).
