Hello Klaus

The thumbnail maintenance command "Clear cache" (Geeqie thumbnail cache, not shared cache) does not always delete the .sim files that are stored in the cache along with the thumbnail .pngs.

It depends on the setting "Disable File Filtering" in Preferences. If File Filtering is enabled (as normal), I think only files of the types listed are deleted - and therefore not the .sim files.

If File Filtering is disabled, everything in the cache is deleted.

Do you know the history of this?

It seems to me that clear cache should always delete everything in the Geeqie cache (as stated in the original help file).
