Alaskatroll, did you download Gimp from lisanet? Also, have you tried uninstalling everything related to Gimp (that is, delete the Gimp folders everywhere etc) and reinstalling from scratch with an official file from an official Gimp website?
Have you got any problems with other programs similar to Gimp? (I don't know about any of the techy stuff, but python is run by some programs isn't it? *ducks in case he said something wrong*) A clean install should always be flawless, so if there's a problem, it's probably your computer that causes them.
As you mentioned the rights-issues, have you tried starting Gimp with SU? (terminal > sudo gimp did the job in Ubuntu Linux). Did you run the installation as SU/Admin?
... If it's none of this, I can't help you I guess..
Maybe wait for the more techy guys around here, or even send a PM to lisanet.
I did a clean reinstall from lisanet. I deleted the gimp folder in applciation support... Are there any other files I should have removed?
I also deleted both XQuartz and X11, and then did a clean re-install of just XQuartz 2.7.1. Then, when I launched gimp, it asked me to locate X11. So I chose XQuartz.app, and nothing was fixed. So I checked out the console, and it says:

every 2 seconds. finally, it says

That's when gimp crashes.
Does that help anyone? Anyone know XQuarts well? I love my gimp
