The only way to reliably find out what may be causing this were to debug
it deeply. A good guess would be gtk2 and related packages, but if you
want to be safe, do this:

0) Start with the gimp, gimp-devel packages
1) find out what packages are required ("rpm -q --requires ...")
2) find out which packages provide these requirements ("rpm -q
   --whatprovides ...")
3) update these packages if necessary
4) repeat steps 1 through 3 until all packages are updated that gimp and
gimp-devel require

Alternatively you can update the whole system which is much easier ;-).

No, they don't have information about library symbol changes.

If you want a fairly stable system, why do you use Rawhide?
