Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-03-25 08:44:02 EST
This is because the gimp package contains dangling symbols as "man pages". Reassigning.
Comment 2 Matt Wilson 2002-03-25 11:09:52 EST
fixed in gimp-1.2.3-3
Comment 3 Peter van Egdom 2002-04-01 12:23:52 EST
I'm getting the same error. But I haven't got the gimp package installed :

    [root@localhost cron.daily]# rpm -qa |grep -i gimp
    [root@localhost cron.daily]#
