Git commit 57b269e2d6dfd8f0c11d482ec12d3e9c126c1cd1 by Ananta Palani.
Committed on 03/02/2013 at 23:04.
Pushed by palani into branch 'master'.

Fix thumbnails not shown in Windows and excessive use of virtual memory / handles which may cause crashes and other unexpected behavior by removing file monitoring and only monitoring directories for changes. These problems might still occur with very large numbers of folders but could not be confirmed. However, medium to large collections should no longer cause a problem.

I have made a beta compilation of digiKam 3.0.0 for you to test whether the commit I just made fixes your problem:


Can you give it a try and let me know how it works for you?
