Yes, look in preferences, you can configure where you want the files
to be written; so point to a RAM based FS there. Another trick would
be using symlinks to redirect the directory structure (useful for apps
that do not allow configuration). Linux tmpfs is backed by swap, so it
could hit the disks anyway.
BTW, why does GIMP have this swap folder? Why doesn't it just allocate
all memory it needs and let the OS do the swapping?
Is it to support multi-GB image data on a 32 bit system? Then it would
be unnecessary on a 64 bit system.
