But is it really finished at that point?
My K-wheel still turns. And all icons are not done.
Scroll right, not even all my png:s was done...
And then you have the .html:s .... (yours are not finished either)

What differs with the video preview problem is that it spawned lot
of artsd - but it might be a side effect.
It looks like one kio_thumbnail is started, sequentially, per icon
