Hi,

thanks for spending so much time in making this great piece of software. 
  I had a look at the port, it is more useable then KDE4 itself!

Back KDE3. I played around with the new version, but I couldn't find any

in ThumbnailView::ThumbnailBuilder::ThumbnailBuilder.
"if ( _images.count() > 0  )" should be added after _images = ...

Cheers,
Christoph
