Gimp 2.8 windows hangs on startup
I installed Gimp 2.8 for Windows tonight on an XP SP3 system and it hangs for more than 30min when starting (never completes initializing). Gimp 2.8 takes 50% CPU and 184Mb RAM and sits "Gathering Data" with no further progress. I end up killing the process.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled into a fresh directory with no change. I gave up and tried to reinstall 2.6 and get almost the same issue except RAM usage goes up to 550Mb and it sits at the startup screen.

Any ideas/suggestions appreciated.

Hang time definitely normal, even after adding 1 new font to your system it needs some time to load up! Don't let that discourage you! Hang in there!
