   I guess you are right that it only updates every 10 image. What
   size of images do you have, that takes kimdaba more than a minute
   to just run md5 sums of 10 images?

120 MB (4000 DPI scans of 35 mm film at 16 bit image depth).  If I
were using medium format, it could easily be 300 MB.

It actually takes about 3 seconds per image, so maybe the 1 minute was
a little high of an estimate, but that's a long time for no response.
