Bug Description

GIMP gives an error when duplicating the frame:
<Start of Error Message>
GIMP Message

Plug-In crashed: "gap_plugins"

The dying Plug-In may have messed up GIMP's internal state. You may want to save your images and restart GIMP to be on the safe side.

<End of Error Message>

I have restarted GIMP three times, two no avail, and tries reinstalling gimp-gap threw adept.

gdb of gimp

(gdb) exec-file gimp
(gdb) run gimp

Could you run "GIMP_PLUGIN_DEBUG=gap_plugins gimp" from a command line, when it prints the pid of the plugin do "gdb -p pid", "(gdb) continue", try duplicating the image and get a backtrace if the plugin crashes then?

It did have the issue on first run on my dapper install but now prints a "could not rename frame" message and nothing about the plugin
