Thanks for the encouragement! At some point I will propose a patch, but I experimented with version 0.8.1, and patches against that is a bit useless.
(0.9.2 didn't compile on my box - I didn't want to go throught the hassle of upgrading ports on my FreeBSD 6.2-REL machine. Thats usually a couple of day's work.)

I have however made some more thinking to optimise this further. If the db queries can be aggregated so that all image info can be retrieved in *one* SQL query, it will be another big performance gain. I will make some more experimentation with this, but perhaps not until next weekend. Even further improvements might be possible for large albums if the db info for all images are retrieved in a single query, but this is a tradeoff between the time it takes for the intial display, and display of subsequent images when you start scrolling.

Now I'm off buying a C++ book so I can improve my C++ skills...  I need to understand the implications of using or not using "const" in method declarations in order to make sure I don't propose something that will do more harm than good!
