It appears that ristretto is not automatically generating thumbnails for these icons. If you open Thunar in the same directory, then open ristretto, the thumbnails are present.

I can confirm that this affects files in the home directory as well. Does ristretto create thumbnails, or is it maybe creating them in a legacy location?

Is this a problem with ristretto or tumbler? I can delete the caches at ~/.cache/thumbails and ~/thumbnails and it seems to work properly for a while but then stops again.
