the problem is that after the recent changes at xcf.berkeley.edu, the
mailserver did not accept mails from my domain anymore. For that reason
the mails stayed in the queue on my notebook. I have now changed my
setup to include a qualified hostname. Sorry for the duplicates...

Since we start to do almost all computations from the idle loop, putting 
useless stuff into the idle loop means you'll have to idle a lot to make 
The Gimp catch up with your changes. I hope your implementation at least 
connects to the image to get notified about changes instead of hanging
around in the idle loop all the time.

But most (all?) window managers scale them down to a tiny 16x16.

IMO the whole thing should go away, but if people like it, please make a 
preferences option to enable it.
