Tuomas (our Soc'er :-) already resolved this on trunk, so please go ahead and 
SVN up.

|    I moved the thumbnail loader into a directory/namespace on its own,
|    and might have broken this accidently.
|    I'll check up on it this weekend. Thanks for notifying.
| That's indeed what happened, as I described in my followup email.  The
| problem is that these subdirectories are built as static archives, and
| ld only pulls in the pieces required for linking.  Since nothing
| directly references the RAWImageDecoder, it doesn't get linked in at
| the final link step.  The only sign of a problem is that the
| functionality isn't available at runtime.
| (BTW, you might want to make it more clear if ImageLoader attempts to
| load a file and fails.  Right now the only thing is that a blank
| screen gets popped up and stays "busy".  You can quit out of it with
| <escape>, but the cursor stays busy.  This might be the cause of some
| of the other busy cursor bugs -- if you quit out of loading an image
| before the load completes, the cursor stays busy.)
| My general concern is that there might be other subclasses elsewhere
| that don't show up cleanly.

|    |    Some time between roughly 05/21 and 05/27, display of RAW images
|    | (at least .crw files from the Digital Rebel) broke.  What happens now,
|    | at least on my system, is that when I double click on a raw image it
|    | never displays; I just get a busy cursor.  I'll try to narrow down
|    | exactly when it broke.
|    |
|    | Whatever broke was between revision 545606 and 545635.
