Because we remove the original file.

I don't quite understand this comment.  Does this mean that when I delete the original image from the disk (but not KPhotoAlbum), YOU delete the thumb?  If this is the case, that explains my problem.  I thought the thumbs should remain unless I delete the image from the Album (i.e. I guess that would mean the KPhotAlbum library). 

In the kde4 branch, we've switched to a new way of thumbnail storage; 
now we use another format, which is a bit more space hungry, but a lot 


I assume that you must start deleting thumbs from $HOME/.thumbs when the size exceeds the maximum cache size is exceeded. Is that correct? Do you have any recommendations for that size?
