Script-Fu is still adding layers while I write this and the count is
approaching 4000 layers of 16x16 pixels here. At the moment gimp uses
about 330MB of virtual memory (256MB physical RAM).  The script has
(gimp-displays-flush) after (gimp-image-add-layer ...), so the layers
dialog is fighting to keep up with the amount of layers and the
scrollbar already shows that GTK+-1.2 has a problem with X coordinates
being limited to 16bit. Let's see how far I can get, but I guess 8000
layers shouldn't be a problem with enough RAM and if you bring enough

Salut, Sven
