To be honest I have no idea what could be causing this. I can't recreate it at my computer. If you can figure out how to reproduce this, some kind of common denominator, please let me know.

For example, reading mp3 tags is pretty fast for 10 files, but can slow the program down when 1000. By having it where it is you can have it disabled, and then quickly turn it on to get a preview just before you rename.

Further I was digging around for some sort of display settings in the Settings dialog as that seemed a slightly more logical place for it to be…but I can also see the reasoning for having it there as well…tho I am slightly puzzled by the thumbnails checkbox…is there times where this is desired?
