[Digikam-users] Massive caching really necessary?

Hi,

the cache is limited. What you observe is the product of three factors:

- in an open album, thumbnails are pregenerated. That means if they are not 
yet in the database, they are created, in the background, for the database
- in 1.3, they were also put in the cache, but that cache is very small. In 
the devel branch, this thumbnailing really only does what it needs to do
- most important: in 1.3 was a massive memory leak appearing only for this 
pregeneration, that is, when viewing large albums. It is fixed for 1.4.
