for the interrested http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=555033
As stated by Sven Neumann that a bug report on this issue might be the
wrong attemption to clear this issue I'll try my luck with this list.
As written in the bug report, 555033, gimp tries to allocate more memory
than it mathematically needs to.
In my opinion the needed memory for an image of the dimensions 15000px
to 15000px at 8bit depth is 214,57MB but Gimp allocates 1,1 GB.
Any Suggestions ?
Thanks in advance.
