Hi Ryan,

did my versions and variants look OK to you?

I noticed that not only 10.7 is broken, but also my 10.6 machine when I 
upgraded last week,

Today I did a selfupdate, I noticed a new GIMP version too! however, the 
issue remains, GIMP does not open any file.

I smell a bug somewhere, it might be a simple misconfiguration or 
incompatible versions of think, but I do not know where, it is probably 
not GIMP itself, if the latest version doesn't change things.
