I don't have enough pdf's for that to be a problem - but there's always
a hidden thumbnails subdirectory in every home directory.  And photos
are fast to load the saved thumbnails every time and that's the same
process.  The only slight annoyance is when I plug my camera in.  It
takes ages to create the thumbnails from the SD card images, but they
are essential to have.
