15 Have you tried using the smaller directory and then addng a few (hundred)
16 images at a time, letting the scan finish and then repeating.
18 I wonder is plasma is using a new method of caching the data, or the old
19 cache got corrupted, so it has to reindex the whole directory again. It's
20 never had to do 150000+ files in one go before because the directory has
21 grown organically. Now, for whatever reason, it seems like it is trying to
22 do the whole lot in one hit.
