thanks Mitch, for your reply.
You're right, on the Mac it depends on the number of processors. Varying this number in the preferences dialog between 1 and 16 showed significant differences. The operation takes 1 second if #processors is set to 1 and about 8 seconds if it's set to 16 processors. BTW: my Mac has 1 processor with 2 cores. It's quite pointless to be able to set #processors in prefs to 16. The upper bound for the input value should be the actual number of processors or cores. Is this a known issue or shall I file a new bug in Bugzilla?

Also, what build are you using? Native or X11?
How can I find this out? I used the fresh 2.8 version from When running GIMP, the X window is open, too. So I'm sure it's the X11 build. How could I otherwise find out whether the Mac build is native?
