This is actually simple. I don't use gimp much but seemed to remember doing 
it. I just fired up a session and ran the test for you.

It worked.

Here is what to do...

1. Load the image.

2. Click on the test tool.

3. Click on the little curved double arrow by the two colours. This is to swap 
white and black for the colour tool.

4. Click in the image where you want your test.

5. Type in your test.

5. Click close on the text entry window.

Done. Unless you want to adjust the location of the text.
