cancelling a plug-in may leave dangling images around
Submitted by kel..@...in.us
Cancelling the warp plugin sometimes leaves the temporary images created to hold the displacement maps laying around.

I'm afraid we can not easily do something about this problem with the current design of plug-ins in the gimp. The plug-in would need to register a quit function that aborts the running calculation, then cleans up. Since Gimp gives us only 10 ms before it kills the plug-in after sending quit through the pipe, it would be very difficult to implement this properly.
I'll set severity of this bug-report to wishlist.
