Thanks for the report, that's not reproducible for me, it could be due to a video driver issue, which video card and driver are you using? is this still reproducible? thanks.

gimp 2.6 has been so buggy, I reverted to 2.4 for the time being. Sorry, I can't test this at the moment, but satrap confirmed he has the problem as well.

Never heard about this. Ubuntu-specifc Radeon-driver related problem?

Same problem here, running gentoo though, just came across this so I thought I would provide insight onto my end.

Gimp 2.6.6
x86-video-ati 6.12.2 (open source)
gtk+ 2.16.2
gnome 2.26

It happens whether I am in metacity or compiz. If I can provide anything else that might help, let me know.

I can also confirm this problem on Dreamlinux 3.5 Xfce with the same Ati Radeon 9600, so it looks like a driver problem.

Found what was causing my problem, it was my GTK theme Gnome Air Suite v2.

Switching to any of the others installed fixed it for me.

Thanks for your report, that's something to send directly upstream at by someone having the issue, for forwarding instructions please read, Thanks in advance.

Here are many different comments. Who is still affected by this bug? The latest version from GIMP with 2.6 is 2.6.12 that is in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. Above GIMP 2.8.x is in our packages. Thank you for telling us.

Then I would make an upstream bug report.
