I feel, and I think many users do, that double clicking should bring up 
a full screen view instead of the editor.  Most of the time I want to 
view full screen and step through images (using scroll, page up/down 
etc).  When I want to edit I can usually click the edit button but as in 
the above I find myself opening the image editor far more often than I 
intend to.  This is a bit counter-intuitive and it might be prudent to 
alter this behavior.

There seem to be error cropping up in the svn version... yesterday I 
couldn't assign thumbnails to albums via the right-click menu.
