Ok I see that the image area is large, but the file is only 200k.  It
would be a nice enhancement if Nautilus could cancel the preview if the
image size is larger than (x).  The current 3Mb file size option doesn't
seem to catch this case.

In the meanwhile I'll have to turn thumbnail previewing off, since I am
not supposed to modify the images.

Thanks to all for your help.
