several Gimp problems

gimp2 @2.6.8_1+no_x11+quartz (active)

Having used the pango 1.26 portfile to get a usable gimp I still have the following error messages showing up in my terminal while gimp is running.

LibGimpModule-Message: Module '/opt/local/lib/gimp/2.0/modules/' load error: dlopen(/opt/local/lib/gimp/2.0/modules/, 10): Symbol not found: _CMFlattenProfile
  Referenced from: /opt/local/lib/gimp/2.0/modules/

(gimp:32765): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_container_remove: assertion `GTK_IS_TOOLBAR (container) || widget->parent == GTK_WIDGET (container)' failed

(gimp:32765): Gtk-WARNING **: Attempting to add a widget with type GtkHBox to a GtkFrame, but as a GtkBin subclass a GtkFrame can only contain one widget at a time; it already contains a widget of type GtkHBox

(gimp:32765): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_box_pack: assertion `child->parent == NULL' failed

The last three look like an upstream failure, but I can't figure out from the gimp bugzilla whether it's known or not. I'm not sure whether the first error is a port error or an upstream error.

I can use gimp with these problems - at least so far I haven't crashed it.

(These are in addition to the numerous 

(gimp:32765): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to find default local directory monitor type

errors that show up in terminal but seem not to have any effect.

Is it a port error or an upstream error that is causing the menus to show keyboard shortcuts as using cmd when they really still require ctrl (even though I'm using quartz and not x-11)?
