No no, you are only prompted at the time where you try to view the actual 
image. You will even see in the thumbnail view that the image isn't on disk, 
and can act before you try viewing it.

| ~/.thumbnails I keep my images in a separate mount (/mnt/photoarchive) and

| /mnt/photoarchive/monitorres (my smaller images that I generate) and
| /mnt/photoarchive/thumbnails.  This would mean that Eivind's suggestion

I'm out of context here, and can't really answer it now. I'll try to catch up 
with my email over the weekend.
