I have almost 30000 photos so that bar does not move from 0% for some
minutes after the start of KPA. But I guess its true that the
thumbnailing starts right after startup.

Maybe such an option makes sense but how does on determine when to
start creating them? Maybe its not desirable that all the thumbnails
are generated on the fly because that would slow KPA down during

Besides that with the new changes by Jesper the rebuilding should
happen less often.
