ok, makes sense

now, I do have preview for all enabled and size limit is at 100MB (Would
like so see a 20MB option, this would cover digicam images). And I do
get some Thumbnails i.e. like here:
There are 42 images like this in this FTP Folder; nautilus shows a
thumbnail for three of them ... wonder why not for all

hm, interesting.
I just run 'gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders'

and I get next to others

"svg" 0 "gtk20" "Scalable Vector Graphics"
"image/svg" "image/svg+xml" ""
"svg" ""
"<?xml" "" 50
"<svg" "" 100
"<!DOCTYPE svg" "" 100

guess this means that I should get a thumbnail for SVG files.
Now the question - why does this not work anymore (on my machine)?

any idea how I can test the SVG thumbnailer? a command line call?

thanks for the explanation
