Bug Description

Though the upper and lower value in context menu of Glow/shrink are 1e6 and -1e6, IMHO these are terribly big and small, too far from next item (i.e. 0.50... and -0.50...) and unrealistic.
When I chose upper one and painted, it took enormously long time and drawing become enormously big.

Never noticed it before, but yes, there's no point in using such a big value.

I've tested with the maximum unzoom available with Inkscape (1%), and the most realistic values should be +10000 and -10000. Bigger values seem to be unusable.

FYI, the intermediate values are calculated from the last selected value by adding or substacting 0.1 and 0.5, which is not really realistic too. What about using a percentage of the selected value instead?

Raising importance to 'Medium' since such high min/max values can cause Inkscape to crash when using the paint bucket without rechecking the current values of the 'Grow/shrink' spin box (see new duplicate bug #720699).

Please revert the status changes if you think the two issues are not related.
