:) Hello !

• Yes, a trivial one ! Image

- I also tested with a folder having sub-dirs in which not any file has this kind of info, to ensure me that's not intentional…

- However, as soon as you open any of these sub-folders, the overlay icons go away and don't come back…
…till the next session ! :P

I can't confirm that behavior. Is caching enabled on your installation, Clo?

OK, when I enable caching, I get the same behavior as reported by you.

:) Hello !

• While checking the oddity reported by budz45 THERE, I found another side of the bug reported here :

1. In the Browser, display a bunch of files having not any metadatum, i.e. some icons in a small folder,
2. Set the display as List+Detail
3. Create a descript.ion file for any icon.
• In the Info column of this (text) file, you have XMP - IPTC - Exif overlay icons ! :P :bug:

I'm using XnViewMP v0.38.7 of 22/Jul/2011 with caching disabled (portable mode).
  • Tools » Settings... » Browser » Cache DB
    • » Thumbnails » Enable thumbnail caching = deactivated
      » Excluded/Included = all drives/partitions excluded
%ProgramFiles%\XnViewMP\XnView.db is 22,528 bytes in size.

Yes :-(

I always do a “clean” (= from scratch) install of XnView and XnViewMP.
I even remove the Trolltech registry settings.
