strange error when launching gimp

$ gimp
The program 'gimp' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
  (Details: serial 17618 error_code 8 request_code 59 minor_code 0)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

XOrg 6.8.1, Composite disabled.
I don't have the slightest clue, what serial 17618 error_code 8 request_code
59 minor_code 0 means.
