Got Gimp installed on my university's Solaris boxes and was
shocked by the size of the resulting executable. With
debugging info it's 33MB (!!!). Well, but I want debugging
info so users can send me stack traces if it crashes...
Guess I'll just not strip it and wait until someone comes to kill me for causing 33 MB going over NFS all the time :)
The 8 bit displays of the Solaris machines made me starting
Gimp in indexed mode for the first time, and voila,
All Gimp plug-ins which have previews share the same piece of code to get their colormap right. And this sequence is
- deprecated because it doesn't use GdkRGB.
- missing in all plug-ins which don't have a preview, causing bad flickering on the display.
Which means I have to hack all of them again, oh no!
