When generating thumbnails for a large
number of image files (I used the BSD icon
collection ;-) ,
a lot of memory is allocated by the Filer. Upon closing
the window, this memory is not released. So far,
so good, we're caching.
The problem is that there is no option to disable
the caching, nor a way to tell the filer to discard the
cache. When working with, say 5 dirs a 4000 images,
100MB of memory usage will easily be reached.
