Description qqqqqqqqq9 2012-03-26 14:19:42 UTC
When gwenview is started from commandline with images-files as arguments, a temporary folder containing the specified images is created. 
A symlink to this directory is added to the "Recent page"
1. The name of the directory is random and therefore the link is practically useless.
2. The link is very likely a dead link after a reboot because /tmp/ has been cleared.
=> 1 and 2 lead to an accumulation of dead and useless links on the recent page

Proposed solution:
Refrain from adding links for temporary files

Mark as duplicate of bug 303474, which is more generic.
