The gimp Open Image dialog contains preview thumbnail. To generate them, gimp calls the plugin to generate them. Now, for raw digital camera files (.nef, .crw ...) this is a very expensive operation - and obviously one would love to use the prepared/pre-stored thumbnail which exists in the file.

From what I could see, there is no way I (the plugin author) can detect if the call is for a thumbnail or not.

Can someone tell me if I am right or wrong?

If wrong - how do I do it?
If right, is there a chance this can be changed?

Thanks, Joseph
