0.99.7 XCF files: "file can't be loaded" or garbled image

Post by evodoc »

I've been experimenting with GIMP lately and unfortunately I'm having some issues openig XCF files in XnViewMP.

Issue A: if I save the file in GIMP by enabling the feature "Save this XCF file with better but slower compression" then xnviewmp can't open it giving the error message "file can't be loaded"
Issue B: if I don't use that feature the image is shown garbled.
Attached samples for both cases:
