One item on my todo-list is a utility program to interact with the thumbnail database. That 
should take care of your specific problem, and make life easier for users with higher 
automation/scripting needs. I envision something that can:

 - compact the database by purging outdated/unreferenced thumbnails
 - generate thumbnails for a list of image files or a directory
 - (maybe) import or export freedesktop.org-style thumbnails

That program is not a terribly big effort to write, but I'm currently barely able to keep up with 
answering my emails ;-)

Cheers,
  Johannes
