            Bug ID: 328732
           Summary: Crash with lots of memory usage while rebuilding
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: digikam
           Version: 3.5.0
          Platform: unspecified
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: crash
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Maintenance
          Assignee: digikam-devel at kde.org
          Reporter: regi.hops at gmx.net

My album collection consists of >9000 pictures divided in 110 folders.
If I select these albums in Extras/Maintenance to rebuild the thumbnails (with
option to "Scan for changed..." set) and start the process, it uses all
available memory (RAM and virtual) until it crash.
No crash report is generated.
Of course the system is getting nearly unusable after swapping starts.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start digiKam
2. Extras -> Maintenance
3. Select all children of a large Album (>5000 images)
4. Rebuild thumbnails
Actual Results:  
Whole memory is used and after a while digiKam crashes

Expected Results:  
Much less memory usage
Don't crash

If selecting "Use all CPU cores" the memory fills up even faster. 

System is:
openSUSE 13.1 x86/64 Bit
KDE 4.11.4
digiKam 3.5.0
Quad core CPU
