– well, the assumption is wrong. LoginUI.exe is in fact a broken

Actually, GIMP expects intl.dll to be in it's installation directory.
However GIMP's plug-ins are separate executables which have to be placed in
another directory, but due to the way Windows loads DLLs, they try to load
intl.dll from the System32 directory before trying the installation

Does that mean you could circumvent it copying GIMP's intl.dll into any
subdirectory containing a plug-in?

(Alternatively, find ut where loginui.exe presides, and move the broken
intl.dll from system32 into that directory.)
