I can help with the thumbnailing. Download the tarball:

It's a small collection of scripts to thumbnail PostScript, PDF and Dia
files. I just updated the install script so that you can install a
thumbnailer for WMF Files. The thumbnailer uses ImageMagick so make sure
you apt-get imagemagick first.

After restarting Nautilus you should get thumbnails for your WMF files.
Email me if you have any problems.
