Holy cow guys, you are both being overly rude. Calm down. I'm working through Peter's problems, I hope help him on this. I have so far been unable to reproduce his issue, even with the image he has provided, which BTW, counts as one of the more disconcerting images I've seen in a while.

I have attempted to duplicate the problem as well. I'm running SuSE 9.2 and re-installed gimp 2.0. The only thing I can find that creates such a problem is when gimp takes up too much memory and the OS kills gimp. I have 9.2 on a laptop with 768 mb memory. I created a very large jpeg and saved it fine on this box. I then removed 512 mb of memory, performed the same and gimp hit the cache. Once the cache approached being full, GIMP was killed by the OS.

What do you do for a living?

Who me? I'm a software consultant. C, Perl, Postgresql, cgi... I also spend a lot of time fixing crashed/infected windows computers.

Until later, Geoffrey
