The hang maybe the sha1 hashes being calculated on the contents of the
pod. Once calculated, they stay in memory for duration of gtkpod session.

What should happen is a photo node will appear under the ipod node in the
left window. Clicking that will display a photo window. If it is not being
displayed then need to look at why.
