I thought about making it dependant on whether the sysadmin put a
default value into the gimprc_user (which is the file that gets copied
into the users .gimp directory later. It should be trivial to parse 
this file during the user_installation step. If the tile-cache-size
is set, use the value and skip the extra dialog. If we document this
even sysadmins that use binary packages have a chance to set a default
value globally.
However, I will certainly not find the time to hack this in the next 

Salut, Sven
