Bug Description

Connecting a digital camera to my computer I got a folder containing jpegs.

The previews of the jpegs displayed by nautilus was those of the previous photos on the camera and not the new photos.

Clicking the reload button in nautilus didn't refresh the previews so making it look like the camera had only the old photos on.

I think It maybe due to the fact that the files are named identically. i.e. the only difference between the old and new files is the time and date
