Yes, on startup I see

$ gimp
Error spawning command line `launchctl getenv 
DBUS_LAUNCHD_SESSION_BUS_SOCKET': Child process killed by signal 11
Dynamic session lookup supported but failed: launchctl terminated 
abnormally without any error message
Not enough memory

followed by one of these for each plugin it attempts to load (all fail)

(gimp:12494): LibGimpBase-WARNING **: gimp: gimp_wire_read(): error

the result is that gimp eventually starts but without any plugins it 
won't do much.

Not sure what is going on as


returns a reasonable socket address if run manually 

Will take a look.  Thanks for the report.
