Over the last two days I've processed about 500 JPG files. Typically:
Open, auto levels (on F10 key) or manual, Crop or resize, maybe unsharp
mask, overwrite (F9 key) with my default jpeg settings. each takes between
1 and 3 minutes. So fairly leisurely.
But the next group has already been processed for crop and size so all I
need to is auto levels and over rewrite, keying:
Ctrl-O, ↓, ↓, Ent, F10, F9, Ent, Ctrl-W Ctrl-D
Open, down-arrow twice to select next image, enter, auto-levels, overwrite,
enter, close, discard changes.
It's very rapid, processing four or five images a minute...
But after 5 or 6 images Gimp crashes — here are bits from the crash report
Segfault happened at: 0x71524: cmp %eax,(%r12)
source (%eax" ok
destination "(%r12)" (0x00000000) not located in a known VMA region (needed

4-core hyperthreaded (so 8 virtual) 16 Gb RAM, gimp allocated 8195 tile
Computers a supposed to be faster than mere humans so I'm boggled that this
should happen just because I'm doing things more rapidly than before.
Is there a fix?
I don't want to batch script because I need to eyeball the images to catch
the occasional ones where auto-levels is a bad idea.
