It is just you! Doing a clean installation does not only involve
removing the installed stuff. You should clean your source directory
too and rerun autogen.sh. The problem you see is caused by the fact 
that you did not correctly rebuild llibgimp/gimpenv.o.

I will try to ignore the stupidity and ignorance you are expressing...

At least bug #7307 was fixed by our changes.

The problem that people do not adjust important parameters like the
tile_cache_size was discussed several times and each time the only
reasonable solution was to ask for it during the user installation.
I have announced at least twice that I'm planning to change it
and noone objected. 

Please, think about what you have said.  We have put a lot of work 
into this and tried to test everything. You should also not forget 
that Mitch and me are the ones who fix the bugs, not you!

Salut, Sven
