--- Comment #6 from Jim Shipman <JimShip at sbcglobal.net> ---
I ran the maint->thumbnail utility and then immediately reran it.  It still
takes several (7 or 8) minutes to run and I can see the same thumbnails show up
on the progress window.  I get the same thing no matter how many times I rerun
without any interviening actions.

The same test using the fingerprint utility runs (slowly at first as it
generates new fingerprints), then it runs immediately with no delay when run
the second time.

I ran digikam from a terminal window and only see a couple of messages like
these below:

libpng warning: Unknown iTXt compression type or method
Thread::requestAbort: not running.

I also had the system log window up and don't see any messages generated from

I can't tell which files are being re-thumbnailed.  Only that the images on the
progress bar look basically the same as they flash by each time I run it.

Is there a way to find out which files it is re-thumbnailing?

Random observation:
Version 3.5.0 seems much buggier than previous versions.  I get hangs if I try
to do anything while a long operation (like tagging a bunch of photos) is
running and have to kill digikam manually.  Also digikam still crashes without
any log info, when I preview a movie file (has always done this since very
early versions -- still does).
