Oh dear. I only thought killing it would be a last resort.
I hope convert doesn't spawn any children, as we may not be killing them
at present.

I increased the timeout to 1 minute when I committed the patch.
There may be delays due to the file being on nfs or a very slow device,
so I'm not sure what the ideal timeout is.

Yes, I think they stay around forever at present.
Maybe they should be cleaned up occasionally.

Though you may not want to delete them immediately, as it may be useful
to keep thumbnails for files on CDROMs.
