I am following up on my earlier post.

I increased the tiff file size to about 380MB by increasing the picture size and 
I then saved it as a jpg which resulted in a file size of 73MB. I closed the Gimp, 
re-opened it and opened the 73MB file.
It was very slow on an 800MHz Duron with about 400MB RAM, but there were NO errors.
The Tile Cache Size is set at 32MB


Hmmm, I just did a dummy scan and made a 90MB tiff file. I opened it
with the Gimp 1.2.5 and saved it as a jpeg in the best quality possible.
Unfortunately, it resulted in a small 10MB file. But no problem to open
