I didn't do this at first because running it manually seemed to get it up
and running while running under Gimp made it lock up immediately.  As it
turns out, running manually also locks up eventually.  

So now all I need is a little time to go back and try strace on the
standalone version on that machine.  Anyone got a couple hours I can add to
my 24 hour clock?  :-)

I've got the latest source from the web site which should be useful enough
to run strace on.  I think one problem is an incompatibility with the
latest Gimp versions (some header changes), but the run time problems are
not Gimp related.  I'll have to fiddle with it (and track down the author -
there is no bug reporting mechanism on their web site).
