Issue with Gimp 2.8 on OSX

Issue with Gimp 2.8 on OSX
First some background. I have a mac book pro that I have previously installed gimp 2.6.12 through Macports.
After uninstalling gimp and macports I installed the Gimp 2.8 package for OSX.

I found that as soon as I tried using the Text tool mac X11 2.3.6 crashed with a SIGSEGV error.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling both Gimp and X11 to no avail.

Next I installed Xquarttz which resolved the issue.

My guess is that the problem may be caused by having Macports previously installed
but I am not techy enough to know this for sure. Perhaps it changes some settings that are not removed when uninstalling.

Hope this helps someone.

Pete

Yes, 2.8 is faster and less buggy for me after installing XQuartz too (on Lion)
