Still seems a bit excessive taking a noticeable amount of time on my 
2GHz, 2G ram machine. Checking a cache should take a infinitesimally 
small amount of CPU time to do a cache compare - i'm clearly assuming 
there is some CRC/Checksum only it checks, unless it's really doing 
rescale and checking the rescaled image with the cache.

I guess most people probably have the luxury of a suspend/resume capable 
motherboard and don't really see this issue often.

Cheers for all the reponses
