Apart from opening the file in a text editor, I found another way to do so from within GIMP, mentioned in a German GIMP forum.

This is a Python script that can be executed from the GIMP's built-in Python console:

for image in gimp.image_list():
  for layer in image.layers:
    except AttributeError:

It runs across all images loaded, across all layers, and dumps the data of all text layers, including font names.

I'd never used the gimp python console (or much python at all) before so I had to figure this out...I had to indent by four spaces per indentation stop or I got a syntax error. – Matthew Aug 8 '12 at 16:55
Same. I copypasta'd into text editor, removed dots (...) from each line, copypasta'd into GIMP > Filters > Python-Fu -> Console then hit enter two or three times to make it work. Success! – Joel Mellon May 8 '14 at 23:50
