Gradient selector for default filters crashes GIMP
Hello,

The title is pretty much self-explanatory. Whenever I try to change the gradient of a filter, more specifically when I click anywhere in the gradient picker box, GIMP simply stops working. Anybody else having this problem? Any help would be appreciated!

RE: Gradient selector for default filters crashes GIMP
I think this was ver. 2.8.6 and affected both windows and linux versions.
It could explain (but not necessarily) why 2.8.6 is missing from the windows installers at
ftp://ftp.gimp.org/pub/gimp/v2.8/windows/
Gradient picker in 2.8.10 works fine, so does 2.8.4

Just as a note: On a WinXPsp3 (virtual machine, standard fonts/no plug-ins/no scripts)
I updated to Gimp 2.8.10, which resulted in a very slow start. 2 minutes to load. Gimp would pause on extension-script-fu for most of that time. Reverting back to Gimp 2.8.4 and from click-to-open, 13 seconds.

This is just for WinXP, a 32 bit Win7 VM with Gimp 2.8.10, (standard win fonts, some scripts, some extra brushes) while it does the annoying loading script-fu's starting up, it is nowhere near as slow. Just timed it, 32 seconds.

So it could be, in some circumstances, reverting to an earlier Gimp, might be a better option. A case of try and see what happens.
