Actually, I meant KDE ingredients -> File Manager -> Thumbnails and
Metadata -> Maximum Size which I had set to 100.0 MB. However, I am
now not as convinced as I once was that this controls the size of the
_digikam_ thumbnails cache. I thought that they were one and the same
because digikam stores it's files in ~/.thumbnails along with
Konqueror. However, I have also noticed that this folder can grow much
beyond the 100 MB that it is allotted.
