Just for clarification, this is with the "Script-Fu" > "Alpha to Logo" >
"Alien Glow" thingy. I noticed there is another copy of it with slightly
different parameters in "Xtns" > "Script-Fu" > "Logos" which seems to
work just fine. It asks you to input the text and font to create the
logo from, and creates an entirely new unnamed document. (It doesn't
allow you to specify the radius of the glow, but calculates a suitable
radius on the fly.)

It appears that the erroneous procedure corresponds to the function
"script-fu-alien-glow-logo-alpha" in /usr/share/gimp/2.0/scripts/alien-
glow-logo.scm but I don't really pretend to understand how this works.
If I'm correct then "script-fu-alien-glow-logo" without the "-alpha"
suffix should be more correct, but from there, it's still not obvious to
me what should be changed or where.
