Ram Usage seems excessive
When I open Gimp it is using 700mb of RAM before I even open an image.

I have 12gb RAM installed.

When I then begin processing an image the mouse lags. Really annoying. If I check the RAM usage whilst processing it goes up to 1.5gb and over.

I have cleared doc history, but still can`t understand why it loads up with 700mb before I even start work.

Preferences have been reset to default.

What am I doing wrong.........?!

Many thanks.
