Why should you re-thumbnail an image after it changed permissions? The
only reason I can see for that is if was readable and no isn't any
The two options are to delete the thumbnail because now you can't read the
full image anyways, or not do anything (the image has not changed).
Either way, I don't see the point in having ctime as a change-detection
