Actually, it's a problem with your backend thinking it needs to
constantly re-create the thumbnails.

Remember that there's a lot more to access rights than just permissions
on most systems today.  ACL's, for instance.  PHP configuration.  Apache
configuration.  (The last two of which don't apply for your backend.) 
And more that I can't think of.

Also, make sure you're running the latest SVN rev of your branch.  IIRC,
there was an issue that made the "last modified" date 1 second before
the PNG preview file timestamp.  This would cause the behavior you
observe, too.
