initially I tought is about images with a big file size (we have quite a few of
those, contributing to the huge size of the gallery).

Now to a technical description of the problem: those big thumbnails are created
because of a misfeature in the script used to generate them. The target size is
128x128, but is not easy to create this with Inkscape from command line, so the
script is creating images with a width of 128px and proportional height.
