           Summary: Album and Imageeditor cache problems

        ReportedBy: krienke uni-koblenz de

Version:           0.9.3beta1 (using KDE KDE 3.5.8)

The cache for photo-icons in an album (which when double clicked opens either the preview of a photo or the imageditor) and the imageeditor itself has caching problems. It sometimes shows "old" photos that actually do no longer exist. 

Here is how I reproduce this effect:

Create a new album and copy some photos in it. Make this album the current one. Start the imageeditor on the first photo of this album and terminate it again. Now delete this first photo and copy one of the other photos in this album to the exact name the first (now deleted) photo had. 

Now you will see the preview icon of the deleted photo instead of the current one. If you start the image editor by double clicking on this photo it will even show the wrong, old  photo. To get things straight in imageeditor you can now change to the next photo and go back again. Then you will see the correct photo in imageeditor. To get the icon in the albums preview correct you have to change to another album and then come back.

This works every time for me I try it.
