Agreed - the gnome version does look much better at the moment.
Thumbnailing LNK files is done by doing a simple parse of the LNK file,
and then using wine's winepath command to convert that into a wine path.
(Hence "winepath" :) )
Certainly, LNK files on Windows partitions wouldn't work at all (under
the current way it's being done.)
