GIMP startup SLOW due to failed access to oscp-router0.gnome.org
GIMP version: 2.10.18
Operating System: Windows 7 64
Package: Installer from gimp.org 2.10.18-2
Description of the bug
GIMP starts, but displays blank (all white) window for about 20 seconds, then splash appears and GIMP continues normally. Further: Clicking on "Check for updates" freezes GIMP for about 20 seconds.
Is the bug reproducible? Always (assuming the destination server is broken)
- Start GIMP
- After GIMP starts, go to Help > About GIMP > Check for updates
Expected result: Start up with splash screen immediately displayed.
Actual result: ~20 second delay/lockup
Problem found with Sysinternals Process Explorer network status for the GIMP process at start. Can fix by blocking all GIMP outbound access with firewall rule. Browser access to oscp-router01.gnome.org or oscp-router02.gnome.org yields a service not available error. Why is this network attempt being made? How can it be disabled (other than at a firewall)?
