I'm not even sure if xlib is the problem. It seemed to be fine until I
tried compiling the latest gimp when the problem showed. When I downgraded
gimp to the stable version the problem followed. Seems I might have hosed

months and this problem has just emerged in the last couple of days. Gimp
mailing list isn't too helpful atm.
