Directory with many thumbnailable files takes too long to load

Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus

I am unsure if this has been reported, and where to report it exactly. I have tried to search but unsuccessfully.

What i do:
Open nautilus
Click on the directory with many thumbnailable files, which have had thumbnails generated already (such as you photo album)
Wait for a very long time.

What happens:
Nautilus waits until it matches a file with the thumbnail to show it at all.

What i expect to happen:
Nautilus should show all files and then slowly load up their thumbnails as it matches files to thumbnails.

This is very annoying if you know exactly what you would like to open, but it sometimes can take a few minutes to load my entire photo album (thousands of photos) directory (i am then forced to delete '.thumbnails' which forces reconstruction of all thumbnails).

Ubuntu 11.04

Please have a look at to know how to install that version. Thanks in advance and sorry for the late response.

As per I'm assuming this is not a bug, it's a generic performance issue.
