The following is not a real solution, but it I think it would make the user 
understand the necessary internals better:

Add a second dialog to the "User Installation" process that explains the user
Gimp's way of handling memory and allows him to choose the size of the 
tile-cache-size and the location of the swap-file.

At this point the dialog should try to propose some reasonably alternatives:
Choices for the directory should be '~/.gimp/tmp' or the the result of 
g_get_tmpdir(). And of course, the dialog should not give any default values 
and will not go away until the user makes a decision.

To allow system-administrators to make this choices for their users, we skip 
the dialog if the global gimprc already contains entries for these settings.

What do you think??

Salut, Sven
