Hi Stefan,
I guess I should've replied earlier. Sorry for delay.

Umm, could you please re-phrase that a bit? That menu item should show
pictures that are present in the DB but aren't readable from the disk.
Can you access them from another applications? What are their names? Are
you using the same user account?

Some people claim it's buggy, just FYI.

There was a bug in the reworked delete dialog which prevented deletion
of non-existant files. This has been fixed.

I'm afraid I don't fully understand what is your issue, sorry. Could you
try to describe it differently?
