    Hi Alina,

    I can reproduce this error/behavior.

    1. Open Luminar
    2. got to "All photos"
    3. scroll up and down and let Luminar create Thumbnails
    4. the longer Luminar creates Thumbnails, the longer it needs for the next to start
    5. and on some point (don´t know when) it has too much thumbnails and the next start is impossible and it starts not at all

    Please fix.
