Bugs should be reported to the GNOME bug tracking system (http://bugzilla.gnome.org). You will need to enter your email address and receive a password before you can use the system to register a new bug report.
There are a number of options to select and boxes to fill in when submitting a bug report. Please remember that the more information you give, the easier it will be to track the problem down. Extra information that may prove useful includes:
How to reproduce the bug.
If you can reproduce it with the testgtk program that is built in the gtk/ subdirectory, that will be most convenient. Otherwise, please include a complete, short test program that exhibits the behavior. As a last resort, you can also provide a pointer to a larger piece of software that can be downloaded.
(Bugs that can be reproduced within the GIMP are almost as good as bugs that can be reproduced in testgtk. If you are reporting a bug found with the GIMP, please include the version number of the GIMP you are using)
If the bug was a crash, the exact text that was printed out when the crash occurred. If you can easily reproduce this crash then running the program under a debugger (e.g. gdb) and getting a backtrace when the crash occurs is very useful.
Further information such as stack traces may be useful. If you do send a stack trace, and the error is an X error, it will be more useful if the stacktrace is produced running the test program with the --sync command line option.
