How to change the size of tool previews in Gimp 2.0?

I am learning how to use Gimp 2.0, and being a former (chemical) darkroom enthusiast, I am playing with obtaining b/w images from color ones.

The problem I encounter is that the "Channel Mixer" dialog shows a preview of the resulting image that is very small - too small to have a clear idea of the result. How can I change the size of that preview? I tried with the "preferences" menu, changing the "Interface"/"Previews" item, but it had no effect.
If this matters, I am using the following version of Gimp: 2.0.4-1 (Debian).

Thank you,

Peter

well, it is not an official thing, no changelog entry count or anything like that, just what i read from the developers interaction -- there are great plans and such being worked on right now for all of the previews.

not only are new previews showing up in dialogs all the time (i use gimp-2.1 from cvs) but the plans that are bantered back and forth should make (for once) a beautiful preview interface that can be used by all of the plug-ins.

so, i guess that gimp-2.2 will cover most of your preview needs.

channel mixer is sorta cool, isn't it?
