You're totally right! I thought we had a warning message like "This could take 
a lot of time"? I'll check that.

For quite some time, KPA can generate the thumbnails on request, if it's 
needed and not there, it's generated. We (mostly Johannes ;-) implemented this 
back then for this very reason that rebuilding the whole cache is a big task.
