--- Comment #11 from Marcel Wiesweg <marcel.wiesweg at gmx.de> ---
Thumbnails are primarily loaded via hash/file size. So in principle, whenever
file contents or file size change, there can be a leftover entry in the
database. These can only be found via "go through thumbnail db -> check if it
exists in main db".
Today, when digikam changes file content, the thumbnail reuse/replacement is
often managed, but probably not from all places. It cannot be managed when an
external tool does the change. So a classical case for a garbage collector.
