I don't see that as a valid use-case. If the file can't be read, there is
no thumbnail. So what would you be storing in the thumbnail cache? Since
there is no cached thumbnail, there's no problem in knowing that you have
to generate it when the file is readable.
Unless the thumbnail spec allows for a negative cache -- I don't know the
If you want the thumbnail to be generated (for the first time) the moment
you change permissions, that's a separate issue. That's an issue of the
file manager that you're using to watch the files for permission changes.
