After I upgraded my machine (Dell, 1GB RAM, PIV processor) to Fedora
7, gimp worked fine for a few days. Then it started to hang after
about ten minutes of use. It works fine (pencil, crop and fill), but
after gimp has been used for about, say ten minutes, whenever I try to
open or save a file from the File menu, the menu appears and then gimp
hangs. Nothing can be done after that except forced kill.
Then I upgraded gimp to the latest available stable version 2.2.17
(from koji). Then after about a week the problem reappeared. I can
work for a few minutes, even save and/or open a file or two, then gimp
hangs as soon as I use an item in File menu.
No problem occurs if gimp is used as a superuser (using su -c). I am
always against running an application as the superuser, and advise
people against it, but I really need to meet a few deadlines.

Any suggestion will be appreciated.
