I was starting to read a PDF file into GIMP, and after some pages, I
considered things would be more organized if I imported as layers instead
of 100+ images, so I cancelled the read.
But, it seems the occupied memory wasn't returned to the system, as I
couldn't start a new read because of lack of memory. I had exit and
re-enter GIMP to get read working again.
I'm using 2.4.5, is this a problem solved later? I haven't seen any
reference to this problem in the changes.
