Bug Description

when opening an image in a directory one of whose files has a broken thumbnail in ~/.thumbnails/normal/, gthumb crashes.

attached is the crash output of gthumb run with strace -eopen to get a rough impression what fails. the last file accessed is a 0 byte png, which was probably created when the system ran out of disk space or a program crash.
