   I applied your patches and they seem to be working nicely. Thanks!

   I find it useful, too, but others might not. I guess it calls for an
   option quite like "show labels in thumbnail view".

Probably it does.

   BTW: Showing the full path exceeds the size of the info box, and I
   really don't want to have scroll bars there. 
   Replacing the 2nd line in Utilities::createInfoText() (in
   Utilities/Util.h) by

   QString text = i18n("<b>File Name: </b> ") +
   DB::ImageDB::instance()->info(info->fileName())->label() +

   results in displaying the same label in the info box that is used in the
   thumbnail view as well (file name without path and ending).

Actually, I specifically want path and ending -- I have been known to
have multiple files with the same basename but different endings, and
I'm using KPhotoAlbum to store photos from multiple cameras.  Maybe it
should be configurable.

(Personally, I hate the notion of programs trying to be "friendly"
about not displaying too much information -- I'd rather have
everything and decide what is and isn't interesting to me.)
