Yep, same here on my relatively new iMac running OS X 10.11.6 and GIMP
2.8.18. My issue is mostly with redraw speed of the preview following any
editing change. I tried all sorts of techniques to try and speed things
up--like changing file cache size, etc--all to no avail. My understanding
is that these speed hits are a very common thing with GIMP 2.8 on Mac. I'd
be very interested to hear details, if you're successful in speeding things
Btw, I've read that Partha's (www.partha.com) 2.9 build may not have this
issue, though I haven't tried it myself, and that 2.10 when it arrives
should resolve this....hopefully.
