Bug Description

The process will run for a while and make thumbs, then it will will randomly hang and all thumbnail activity will stop. The proccess never unfreezes. Executing nautilus -q will reset everything and it will begin working for a few minutes before hanging again. Seems to only happen on remote shares. Was never a problem on 12.04. Booting 12.04 will generate thumbnails for the same video files.
