You received this bug notification because you are a member of Desktop

Directory with many thumbnailable files takes too long to load
Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu:
Binary package hint: nautilus
I am unsure if this has been reported, and where to report it exactly.
I have tried to search but unsuccessfully.
What i do:
Click on the directory with many thumbnailable files, which have had
thumbnails generated already (such as you photo album)
Wait for a very long time.
Nautilus waits until it matches a file with the thumbnail to show it at all.
What i expect to happen:
Nautilus should show all files and then slowly load up their thumbnails as it
matches files to thumbnails.
This is very annoying if you know exactly what you would like to open,
but it sometimes can take a few minutes to load my entire photo album
(thousands of photos) directory (i am then forced to delete
'.thumbnails' which forces reconstruction of all thumbnails).
