I have committed a number of changes that touches this area. Some functionality
was missing and some bugs need to be fixed. I have tested some but not all

There is a number of situations where updating of thumbnails/preview will _not_

- it relies on KDirWatch watching file changes. If this does not work on your
system, you wont have updates
- I chose not to install watches for thumbnails. If you overwrite a file that
is displayed as thumbnail (and not as preview/in image editor), and change it
without deleting it first (e.g. with "cp"), the KDirWatch may not notice this.
There were problems with a high number of file watches in the past.
- If you edit your file containing an IPTC preview with a program that does not
know about such things, the thumbnail may never change if the preview did not
