Ah, well, what you can try to do is run it manually to see if it gives any 
clue about possible errors.

run gst-thumbnail (movie name) (png name) and see if it says "Snapped" or 
not.  If it did, it dumped a png and you can check if it works.  If it 
didn't, something else is wrong.

I can't give you the gconf location of the thumbnailers now, because I'm 
not at my pc.  You could check there if the commands are set up right.

the quickest workaround to this problem is to do
cd /usr/lib
rm -f *.la

.la files are only needed for portability library linking, which you don't 
need on your system since you run a fairly advanced linux version ...

Same here.  And no, you don't need all of gnome CVS :)
