I don't see anything there that indicates it is gimp_dir,
and none of the values are the ones set by default, which in my case
is ~/.gimp-2.8. All of the directory options are for source info
(such as libdir, prefix, execprefix, mandir, etc., and all of the
values are in non-user-writeable directories.
My system-wide (freebsd) default gimprc, /usr/local/etc/gimp/2.2/gimprc,
has the following (commented-out) lines:
If I look at Preferences/Folders, I see
Temporary folder: tmp
Swap folder: .gimp-2.8
If I open a 10,000 x 3,000 .xcf which is 128MB, with the tile cache size set to
16MB, I see a new file ~/.gimp-2.8/gimpswap.6637, and nothing in ~/tmp. I
don't know what will cause something to be written to temp space, but
apparently gimp_dir is set to ~/.gimp-2.8 by default on fbsd. It is
particularly confusing because the "tmp" entry, when seen in the UI, *looks*,
because of the missing prefix path components, like it would be /tmp or ~/tmp,
but in fact is not.
Thanks for the pointers.
