Dear Maintainer,

Use Gimp to add and edit text. Use toolbar to select font for the text and scroll for the one you want. After a while of scrolling Gimp crashes. I searched the logs for signs and found this in kern.log.
Sep  6 11:16:52 this kernel: [11329.417012] gimp-2.8[31007]: segfault at 58 ip 00007f0d6403771e sp 00007fffb6e23990 error 4 in libpangoft2-1.0.so.0.3200.5[7f0d64028000+15000]

Tried again and everytime I scroll fonts it segfaults. I can select font by writing the real font name.
