    I use Inkscape with the bezier envelope extension for that

I fiddled with it for 15 minutes or so then went looking for another option.
    Gidde, that is actually staggeringly simple problem to solve. Your text is too long for your path. If there are "path nodes" that cannot fit in relation to the length of the path, GIMP defaults to sticking it in the corner. Try to push the path out a little longer or reduce the font size (or put in a negative character spacing)...
