On an up-to-date x86_64 machine with gimp-2.8.2-1:
1. Start the GIMP.
2. Create a new picture.
3. Select the text tool.
4. Click anywhere on picture: a box appears above the text zone.
5. Click on that box's font input zone and type stuff: the GIMP crashes.

Here is a backtrace for this segfault:

It could be SCIM's fault but it was last compiled in June...
This task depends upon

Rebuilding the GIMP does not solve the issue.

This looks like that exact same bug:

Downgrading the GIMP does not fix the issue either.
However, uninstalling SCIM does...

The Debian bug referred to above is now a bug against scim-gtk2-immodule rather than against gimp in Debian's bug tracker. Is this really a bug against scim in Arch?

cfr: We do not have as fine grained packages as Debian. But I guess you are right in that gtk2 is concerned too.

Is this bug still valid? I can' reproduced it anymore with actual gimp.

I will close this bug if no one has any objections against it.

I can still reproduce it. Do you have SCIM installed?
Comment by Isenmann Daniel (ise) - Wednesday, 12 June 2013, 05:36 GMT
Yes, gimp and scim installed. Click on the box's font input zone and it works. Running under GNOME.

If it's just me, never mind then. No need to keep this open until I find the time to really investigate what is going on.
Comment by Isenmann Daniel (ise) - Tuesday, 25 June 2013, 19:01 GMT
Okay, I will close it like you suggested it.
