OK, so I’ve noticed what seems to be a bug in GIMP. I’vegotten it to do this
three times now.
I’ll post it in a more appropriate location, once I confirmI’m not crazy.
If I have a gimp session open, and have been working in itfor a while, I’ve
noticed that if I double-click on an XCF file, to open it;GIMP dumps my
existing open session, with NO warning whatsoever, and reopensanew, with the
Any (unsaved) work done in the previous session simply…vanishes.
Subsequent attempts to open other XCF files from that pointon, just open a new
window, as expected; in the same session.
I’m not sure what it takes to trigger the other less desirable…let’s call it
ambitious open/file process, other than time. After it does this…thing, I can
open and close GIMP repeatedly and it works as one would expect –openinga new
window in the same session. But for some reason, after a session has beenopen
for a while (think days), clicking an XCF file to open it, causes theexisting
GIMP session to abort/abend/awhig-out?
This is 2.8.14 on a Windoze 7 machine.
