Hmm the traceback doesn't really indicate much to me, let me know if you can 
reproduce this consistently.

Actually, the next thing I'll be working on is to try and make background 
threads generate thumbnails, so it shouldn't be that bad. But indeed something 
to consider.

Well actually, that was one of the things I threw out (see my blog), it took 
quite some time to do this scaling.

Having trouble finding a given image in your collection containing
thousands of images?

http://www.kphotoalbum.org might be the answer.
