Hello everyone...

I am experiencing a rather weird problem I have never encountered before. While using Gimp, the system will abruptly log out.

For example: Open Gimp > New File > select bucket tool (or any tool) > (click) on the new image with tool... then, BOOM! The system logs out.

I am using Precise 12.04, and I have a Thinkpad T420s. The only logs that have any information about the abrupt logout are what I found in:

(gimp-2.6:7435): LibGimpBase-WARNING **: gimp-2.6: gimp_wire_read(): error
This error is always reproducible, I log back in open gimp, use a tool, BAM! logout again...!?

Can anyone help me capture more error information so that it can be attached to this thread?

Maybe it could be a bug? Any help from the community is greatly appreciated since I need to use Gimp to make a meager living...
