hmm, that's a bug in the user interface. Could you file a bug-report
for it, please ?

hmm, we didn't do any significant changes to the way GIMP handles the
tile cache so it should actually behave just like GIMP-1.2. The only
difference should be that it should now be possible to use a cache of
size > 2GB and that the core should be able to deal with swap files
larger than 2GB. I say "should" since these changes haven't seen much
testing yet.
