Sorry for the misunderstanding... ok try this: test it by yourself!
Start a UBUNTU 12.04 live and install GIMP 2.6.12. Don't worry, it
installs it in RAM not on disk... then try it out if the defect is still
there... if it is still there...then you have to use the newer GIMP
2.8.0 ...

Go test and report about it!
