Yes, you have a point.  It appears that the slider (which I note should 
NOT be on the status bar) should control the size of previews *only* and 
the size of icons should be set in the settings dialog.

Then we would probably need a check box for:

	Lock Icon Size to Preview Size

IIRC, KDE-3 has a way to make the previews larger than the icons.  I 
would also suggest a check box for that.  Or, you could have a shorter 
slider to set how much larger the the previews are (setting it to "0" 
makes them the same size), either as the default or if locked together.
