Correct, also called thumbnails.  I think it's more og less
a standard developed by the XV-team.  I like GIMP being able
to make use of it.  It's simple small images (in some
obscure format =) saved in a hidden directory called .xvpics.

However, GIMP can be told to stop saving new thumbnails
somewhere in the preferences menu.  Sorry, I cannot help
you further because I haven't installed GIMP on my new Debian
system yet.
