Thanks ! We agree.

Currently CVS, we're planning a release really soon now (ie this week if I 
get round to it :) and Julien lets me)

The schema is in the tarball.  If you installed from source, make install 
might get it right.  You might prefer having an RPM though, which does it 
for you.

They're stored in ~/.thumbnails, I think this is according to the 
freedesktop.org spec

I've been told that the last one to install the schema wins :) And given 
how it works, that sounds logical to me.  I don't know if I can give a 
better suggestion to the nautilus maintainers on this count though.
