Sounds good, as a regular user I'm all for configurable options!

I've now loaded 0.90-beta2 and noticed that the problem I had appears to have 
disappeared! I can notice a delay when reloading thumbs after having switched 
to another album (NB: I never enter the directories containing my Raw files, 
I have everything copied as 1/4 size Jpeg) but that delay is not a problem. I 
can only guess that's probably the difference in access times between 
Digikam's own buffering and KDE's cache.

0.90 is looking good! Thanks a lot Gilels, Marcel and everyone else
