I presume you meant 2.7 GB.

I ran into a similar thing some time ago, working with a modified version
if gimpressionist that created and deleted lots of images.  I think probably
there is a bug somewhere responsible for it, but I never managed to
figure it out.  In any case, of course, Gimp 2.2 is no longer maintained
and won't be fixed.  You'll probably have to replicate this in Gimp 2.4
or 2.5 to get anybody interested.
