No, the directory is a couple levels deep on a portable harddrive. 
Jesper is helping me work through the problems.  So far we have found 
that home directory didn't have enough space for .thumbnails and I am 
currently investigating a possible image corruption for the "gray" 
thumbnails and images. The double thumbnails looks like a possible 
procedural problem on my part, but I need to confirm.   I think I can 
reproduce it.  I'll post later when it's resolved to my satisfaction.
I'll need to consult with Jesper once I have confirmed what I have been 
finding the last hour of so.

Thanks for the suggestion,
