I wonder if a problem I have had with saving files from Gimp in Windows is
somehow related. If I save direct to the local hard drive, there isn't much of
a problem. But if I try to save to say, a flash drive plugged into the same
computer running Gimp, or to a network drive, then file save times get really
long. Yes, you expect those two situations to take a bit longer, but not that
long. I can save an .xcf file to the local drive and then transfer it to a
flash drive or a network drive and it is loads faster than trying to save
directly from Gimp. (which is what I typically do, save first to the local hard
drive, then transfer the file to the drive I actually want to store the file
