Excellent idea!  If the problem goes away then, then you've eliminated the 
core dolphin kpart as the issue, and can file a bug on the thumbnailer.  
If it doesn't, then the kpart may very well be the problem.

Another excellent suggestion!  If it's the config, one can then use the 
process of elimination/bisection to find the individual file and if 
desired, line in the file, that's the problem.  I've done that a number of 
times myself.
