   On my config, I was thinking the image display was recently slowed down.
   According to what Robert says, with the patch that was done some months ago
   about selecting only on thumbnail and press enter =3D> it loads every photos
   currently displayed. So could it be possible that this lag would be found
   also while showing only one image?

How many photos are in your thumbnail viewer?  If there's only one
photo in the thumbnail viewer, this wouldn't account for it.  If there
are a lot of photos in the thumbnail viewer, and you select exactly
one and press enter, it would.
