Thanks for prompt reply - I'll (attempt to) look into mentioned updates.
BTW: What is XCF?? :)
I might add the information that prior to my first 'save as'-attempt(s), the
computer began acting rather 'sluggishly': Even simple(?) tasks took VERY
long time to accomplish - it felt like running short on RAM??
I'm in no way any kind of expert on graphics handling, but during GIMP
installation I got the impression that some kind of 'virtual memory' ('swap')
was being allocated (64 MB?)
I don't know the specific memory requirements for the transactions I
performed, but intuitively they would seem << 64 MB!?
Does this shed any more light over the matter? :)
