How do you delete the image? I *know* that $image->delete sufficed to delete
an image totally, but this was some months ago.

It is possible that some new bug was introduced, though.

(ps: gimp-1.0 has various but rather small memory leaks so after millions
of operations your perl-server and the gimp will grow by a few megabytes.
This does not affect image deletion, however).
