    Gimp has not been updated in more than a year.

    Try upgrading the X11 version on your Mac. Many people have reported problems with X11-based applications in Lion.

    See Here:

    I can't say if this will help fix GIMP for you, but GIMP is definitely X11 based.

    I have seen on forums that people are running GIMP on Lion, also make sure you have the latest version of GIMP.
