It should be my laptop's problem to handle that, not my application's

[And I completely agree with Thomas that this is totally annoying in
gthumb; it's obvious that icons being shown should be /prioritized/ but
that should not stop you from rendering everything else once the ones
being shown have been rendered. If my computer was twiddling its thumbs,
and then I scroll around, and then /my/ time is wasted while I wait for
things to render, something is broken.]
