Shouldn't we increase the default for the tile_cache_size? GIMP was shipped
with the default of 10MB years ago. Memory is cheap nowadays and I guess we
can expect the average user to have more RAM available. I'd suggest setting
it to 32MB.

I want to present an older idea once again since the discussion about the
tile_cache_size is bac alive. I propose to add a dialog to the 
user_installation step that lets the user specify the tile_cache_size and 
the swap directory. Of course such a dialog would also have a few short 
sentences explaining the importance of these settings together with hints 
for a good choice.

Here it works like a charme and IIRC has been fixed a week ago.
