This is the problem. The memory used by the Gimp process grows 
constantly. After finishing up the physical memory, it does not create 
the swap file.

On Gimp 1.2 the swap file was created, but it kept growing. On 2.2 and 
2.4, no swap file is created and the Gimp process terminates.

What size should I set for the tile-cache? Currently I use a value of 
128 MB.
