that was at least intended. As I said, I introduced the hashes originally as an abstraction of filename/path in order to be able to show the log on different machines (including different OSs with different path conventions) as long as the files are in some form locally available. So when loading via the hash (meaning: from the hash we would infer the actual filename) we would still compute the hash of the file that was loaded and update the hash accordingly in the log.

It was only later that the hash was also used as a key to coached thumbnails.
