GIMP crashes on opening EPS-Files
GIMP version: 2.10.12
Note: bug reporters are expected to have verified the bug still exists either in the last stable version of GIMP or on updated development code (master branch).
Operating System: Windows 10 Home Edition 64 Bit (Version 1903)
Package: Installer from gimp.org
# Description of the bug
Whenever I try to open an EPS-File in GIMP, I get an Error-Message after confirming the "Import from PostScript"-Dialog. As far as I know, GIMP has its own Ghostscript on board, doesn't it? Anyway I have Ghostscript AGPL Release 9.27 (64 Bit) installed, because I also use SCRIBUS. Another GIMP-User, who called my attention to this issue on the german GIMP Forum, has the same problem. He also uses Windows 10 64 Bit, and tried making it work with the 64 Bit and also with 32 Bit Version. But without luck. He got the same error.
Is the bug reproducible? Always
- Click "Open" in the "File"-Menu.
- Chose the EPS-File
- Just confirm the "Import from PostScript"-Dialog, without changing anything.
Expected result: The EPS-File should be opened in GIMP, like pictures normally do.
Actual result: The EPS-File doesn't open, the Error-Message appears in the Error Console, the "Import from PostScript"-Dialog doesn't close.

`GIMP Error Plug-in crashed: "file-ps.exe" (C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins\file-ps\file-ps.exe)
The dying plug-in may have messed up GIMP's internal state. You may want to save your images and restart GIMP to be on the safe side.
GIMP Error Opening 'D:\Pictures\Zeichnung.eps' failed:
Update: I just made some experiments with the EPS-File and had to notice, that it even can't be opened with other programs like Krita, Scribus and LibreOffice Draw. Even Inkscape doesn't open it, also I created the EPS with Inkscape. Only IrfanView shows it. So it seems not to be a GIMP-Problem, I think.
