You did something a little foolish.
Namely, using this forum, which is a bastardized interface to the real
gimp-user mailing list, rather than the real thing.
As you can see, it has major bugs. 4 replies were posted between your first
and second messages here, each with a different solution, so your second
message looks like you're trying to be a smartass and ignore these replies.
Of course, you're not, but this is the problem with bastardized abstractions
of all kinds -- they don't quite do what you expected, especially in unusual
I recommend you subscribe to the gimp-user mailing list instead of using this
strange creature - see http://www.gimp.org/mail_lists.html
