Sorry for the late answer, time is unfortunately a rather limited resource to 
me these days....

First question is, do you use the git version or one of the released versions? 
KPA has changed a lot wrt thumbnails since the last release. So going to the 
other may make a lot of sense to try and overcome the problem.

second quesiton, do you have a report from valgrind?

Having trouble finding a given image in your collection containing
thousands of images?
