I would try running gimp from the command line rather than from a
Desktop icon; you'll get more informative messages that way.
I would try running it as a different user. If it works for that user,
the problem is somewhere in your user directory. If it doesn't work for
that user, the problem is somewhere in the global gimp install/setup.
Yes, mv ~/.gimp* ~/.gimp.backup
Since GNOME3 is a PITA, take a look at gimp --help-gtk, anyway, at least start it by gimp --verbose
