I just installed The Gimp
2.2.8 on my laptop. Somehow when I used it on other machines I managaed to miss the fact that it's partially migrated
to Hebrew, and that this mode is enabled by default on machines with their regional options set up accordingly.
Now, I can't stand Hebrew in applications so I generally always set
localizable applications to English (including GAIM and even Windows
itself); getting Hebrew menus is bad enough, but when they're only
partially translated and the dialogs aren't RTL'd to begin with it
looks absolutely terrible.
If you try to run The Gimp on a Hebrew-enabled machine I seriously suggest you set LANG=en in your environment settings.
