No preview image in OS-X 10.6.8

No preview image in OS-X 10.6.8
I've looked through the documentation, and searched the forum, and haven't found a clue as to why this is happening. On my Mac Mini, when I use the "Open..." dialogue, I get a list of files. Clicking on one should bring up a preview, as it does on my Windows 7 machine, but on the Mac the preview stays blank. Even if I try to force a preview update. This is with GIMP 2.8.8.

It's not a big deal--I never had a preview in my old Photoshop--but it'd be nice to get this to work.

Thank you.

RE: No preview image in OS-X 10.6.8
I've had an issue, still might have it. With the preview update in windows as well ( I think it was gimp 2.8 on XP, dont have the problem on win8), but its with the file details in an infinite loop until you click the preview window.

This would be a temporary work around if it works:
So try clicking the preview window on the "open..." window (should be in the right-side pane of that window.)


Doing a google search I couldn't find anything but a forum about x11 on mac with gimp, but they didn't mention anything about the preview pane, so besides that clicking the preview thing, if that doesn't work, not sure yet. Maybe someone has a better idea.
