No, no , and no...

digiKam shared thumbs generated by KIOslave (the digiKam one), but do not use thumbs generated by another application. Why ? because thumbs generator from digiKam is better.

Try to generate thumbs from konqueror, which use a code from KDELibs : all raw file are not supported, only few JPEG are done (with a special compresion ratio), PNG and tiff sometimes do not work, IPTC.preview tag is not supported...

Well, for me, digiKam thumb generator is better. that all... This have been done as well to solve a lots of old bugs reports set in bugzilla.

For your problem, i recommend to check your installation. digiKam KIO-slave work perfectly. I suspect a depency broken (check libkexiv2 and libkdcraw). Look in your ~/.xsession-errors

Note : in KDE4, thumbs kioslave have been removed. we use now multithreading. It's more easy to debugs and can be adjusted fine (priority, fork to cpu, etc.)
