Using an unofficial patch to downgrade GLIB to a version that properly builds on 32-bit Windows, everything now seems working in GIMP 2.10.2.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

If the 32-bit version causes so much troubles, is it not worth it to finally support their 64-bit version? It is a heavy graphic program, so it's likely there are benefits.

The portability as itself, imply that the software should run no mattering the architecture, though; settings are moved to folders where the software could read them (again, no mattering what Software's Binary architecture is ran), at least, that is what I noticed here.

There's some software that only have X64 builds, but yeah... mostly of recent windows installations are x64's architecture (even if the computer have just 4Gb of RAM).

This has been discussed quite a bit. We don't do 64-bit-only at present as it won't work for quite a few users and GIMP is too big to be a dual mode app (it's almost 500MB). We don't do separate builds as adding multiple builds would increase the workload and I don't have additional time.
