We dont have control over what gimpusers have on their site as its a 3rd party 
site. Sorry again, if I have been beating you up over it.

Ah, corrected the error then.

I have the same setup then.

Your problem is interesting, because its contrary to what I would expect and 
experience myself. For me GIT version performs about twice as good as 2.6, 
especially with large brushes, and thats with compositing on. To get the 25px 
round brush to lag at all I have to move lightningfast. and then it usually 
catches up in under 2 seconds. My hardware configuration is admittedly slightly 
better than yours... But 25px brushes really shouldnt be a problem anywhere.

Yes. perhaps. but experiences dont help me fix the problem if there is one. 
Someone who can build gimp themselves and use a profiler and has this issue 
would really help.
