E.g. for File:Brewsteri nurk.xcf my ancient GIMP 2.8.14 reports "XCF error: unsupported XCF file version 11 encountered" while my brand new 2.10.2 opens it without problems. So my guess is that some software (ImageMagick???) needs to be updated. File:3d text Veniamin Bibikov fotolia-849x478-637x359.xcf is even better example – the first version was written by an old version of GIMP and two latest by 2.10.

Seems to be https://github.com/ImageMagick/ImageMagick/issues/1133 in upstream (which is not fixed yet)?
