How about when nautilus recieves a change notification for a file it
will store the filename and change time in a hash table. If it gets
another change notification in a predefined timeout it will only update
minimal changes (i.e. no thumbnail, but file size in the list view
should probably be updated). If it dosn't get any mre change
notification in under that timeout it can then fully update everything.

The length of this timeout depends on fam, but I think 2 seconds is
probably more then enough.
