konqueror does not display thumbnails if images lie on "system:/" path

Description of problem:
Konqueror does not display thumbnails if you select the "system tab" then use a
path like "system:/media/sdb1/Pictures"
The same directory can be accessed if you select the "root" or "home" tab then
use path "/media/USB DISK/Pictures". In that case the thumbnails are displayed.

I need a shot of Vodka to calm myself down.
You have to go to Konqueror's settings (Previews and metadata tab) and
specifically enable thumbnails for the system:/ protocol (it's disabled by
default I guess).
ZOMG!! Oh Noes! I didn't realise that I had to select it, too. I tweaked the
slider in he Previews and Metadata tab (to no avail of course). Oh man.. sorry
