We have recently talk about this problem with others kipi developpers.

Why digiKam show properlly all thumbs and not plugins ? because digiKam use an advanced kioslave di extract thumbs from pictures. plugins use the standard KDE kioslave witch is very limited. 

Note : try to open the folder which contains these pictures into konqueror and you will see the same sad thumbs effect than plugins.


it will be time to improve libkipi to provide a new feature : add way to use thumbs (and cache of course) extracted from kipi host apps. 

Note2 : digiKam, Gwenview, and KphotoAlbums use differents way to extract thumbs and cache data...
