The clock is the "wait a moment, while I create the icon" indicator.
Eventually it should disappear to be replaced by an thumbnail picture
that represents that particular file, or something more generic for the
type of file.

When it makes a thumbnail, it stores the image inside ~/.thumbnails/.
It usually does use the same image that it's previously created, but
perhaps there's a reason why it recreates them (e.g. the file's
apparently changed content).  The thumbnails seem to be associated with
the files with some sort of hash.  I don't know if it's a hash just
based on the original file content, or includes filenames and paths as
part of the equation.
