Hey there
I don't quite understand your statement, because I am using the GIMP to produce prints 
from my slides. I am
scanning whith a HP-Photo-smart scanner, and it's resolution is 2400 dpi, so a 
'normal' slide is aproximately
2400*3600 pixels.
I am working with a AMD K6/3 400 MHz and 128 Mb of RAM - that is fairly OK. but 256 Mb 
would be better, so the
machine is a little slow, but everything is working OK.
My guess is, that you have some kind of mis-configuration.
