GIMP's GEGL C2G operation hangs

Bug Description

When I run GEGL's C2G operator:

- The operation hangs (it does not crash, it just hangs) more or less in the middle of the process.

- The operator works in rectangles. Some of these rectangles are obviously darker than the rest of the image.

- I takes way longer than before. Maybe the parameters have changed their meaning or the internals have changed, and the iterations and samples have to be lower. I don't know right now.

I usually run at a radius of 1600, 40 samples, 20 iterations on 16MPix images (4928 x 3264).

I've done further testing.

With smaller images, thus lower radius and iterations/samples, the problem still arises.

I've done some tests with the "gegl" command line command, and it works just fine. I can definitely apply the operator with something like:

gegl -p -o /home/esteve/1.png -x "<gegl><node operation='gegl:c2g'><params><param name='radius'>1800</param><param name='samples'>16</param><param name='iterations'>16</param></params></node><node operation='gegl:load'><params><param name='path'>/home/esteve/2.png</param></params></node></gegl>"

It applies the operation and saves the result, so I'd say the problem resides in the GIMP, not in GEGL, or at least in the link between the two.

Just as a final test, I've installed Ubuntu 15.10 clean, in a virtual machine (KVM), and the problem also appears there.
