GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 735507
Gimp crashes when resizing the Window
Last modified: 2016-04-05 10:59:01 UTC
How to reproduce:
- open Gimp in single window mode, but smaller than full display
-- size of the gimp window can be changed
- open an image or create new image
-- try to resize the gimp window, it will crash immediately
Tested with Windows 7
I can't duplicate this one. Maybe you should delete the GIMP cache folder and then retry to see if this happens again.
Windows 7 x64 SP1
GIMP 2.8.14 x64

Sorry, my text was deleted. Here again:
I installed 2.8.14 on an old but clean XP/32 system with the same result, crash when resizing eiter the Gimp Window in single-window-mode or the image-window in multi-window-mode. In multi-window mode, it happens only with the image-window, all other are fine.
In both cases, single and multi, it does NOT happen after just starting Gimp, it happens only, if an image is opened or created. In that case, Gimp crashes immediately on both systems:
WIN XP/32 SP3 (no former Gimp installation, no additional plug-ins, scripts, Filters, etc.)
WIN 7/32 SP1 (Gimp 2.810 was running well before installing 2.8.14)
Might be limited to 32 bit Windows platforms then - from my XP VM:
gimp-2.8.exe caused an Access Violation at location 00B94B3B in module libpixman-1-0.dll Reading from location FFFFFFFF.

- and possibly theme-(engine-)realted?
Disabling the MS-Windows theme engine prevents this - so it is likely a bug in GTK+ 2.24.23
It's a bug of libcairo/libpixman.
I used older versions of these libraries and everything went fine.

and from the comment at:
I think you're right and it is a duplicate of:
if it is necessary to build pixman-0.30.0 then I suggest
to configure it with --disable-mmx and --disable-sse2 for
32 bit windows. Probably a more recent version has that bug
