I haven't been following this thread too closely, but have you tried renaming the profile directory? I'm guessing something in there is corrupt, causing the hang.
On XP it's: C:\Documents and Settings\[your_username_here]\.gimp-2.6 (Could also be .gimp-2.7) I'd rename that (".gimp-2.6-backup") and restart gimp. See what happens. -James _______________________________________________ gimp-user-list mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user-list
