We could do so, easily enough. However I'd prefer to fix the actual problem. 
That might be related to the refresh mechanism, if not the thumbnails plugin 

I've spent a day refining the refresh mechanism, including a couple of tweaks 
in the thumbs plugin.

I have to expect that this round of changes will introduce a bug or two, so if 
you can, please get code from svn and test it.

It might be worth making a pre-release.
