Trying to start gimp, but it crashes immediately with:

GLib (gthread-posix.c): Unexpected error from C library during 'pthread_setspecific': Invalid argument. Aborting.
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Updating the system did not help, the crash happens since a couple of days. In the upstream bug report (other user, same crash), the crash just went away after an update. But unforunately not on my system.

Additional info:

* gimp package: 2.10.30-1
* bug entry upstream:
* coredumpctl log see attachment

Steps to reproduce:

Start gimp.
This task depends upon

Hm ... turns out gtk-update-icon-cache was not properly installed (inconsistent root file system). After reinstalling it, the crash no longer happens.
