Thank you very much for your help.

Actually my PC doesn't perform Hypertreading.

I tryied with GTK+ version 2.6.8 but I have the same result.

The window freezes after I have been choosing the new format (e.g. jpg) and
I click save.
All the window keep gray fonts except the raw describing the new format (jpg
in this case) which remains black.
I see the clepsydra for few seconds then nothing more. The "save as" window
is open but totally inactive.

Thank you again,

At what time exactly does it freeze - when opening the save as dialog
(before you enter a filename) or after the filename has been entered and you
clicked on 'Ok'?

There is a new GTK+ version available, 2.6.8. As the component involved here
is from GTK+ and usually get some fixes between releases, it would be
worthwile to update.

Another possible reason would be Hyperthreading. Check if it is enabled on
your system - both windows and some BIOSes contain bugs related to it, but
there are fixes, at least for Win XP (in SP2).
