Gimp 2.6.1 crashes at start up on Vista.


I've reported this on Bugsilla, but thougth someone migth notice it here aswell.

My system is Vista home Premium service pack 1, AMD Turion 64 X2 1,9Hz, 2GB RAM, Nvidia GeForce 8600sM GS.

I have two user accounts both got admin access. On the first account Gimp 2.6.1 runs all right, on the other I only get to see this "Vista" sign:
gimp-2.6.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
The funny thing is the trouble´s appearing on the same account where 2.6.1 was installed, and it was first time clean install.

Here is the data from verbose:
INIT: gimp_loaf_config
Parsing 'C:\Users\Liv\.gimp-2.6\unitrc'

Hope this info can be of any use

Hi guys. I’ve been using GIMP for a while and I love it. Now, I’m a college student and I have to pay for my own way through college. I thought about GIMP and remembering how it has helped me in the past, by retouching my and my friends’ images. At the time I wished there was an easy way for me and others to use the program. Then I decided to create 10 retouching image tutorials and recorded them on DVDs that was user friendly and easier for people to use. I would like to sell the DVD for $14.99, which would greatly help me through school. Please purchase this product to support my efforts and the GIMP community. Thank you very much.
