The recordings are on xfs, MythWeb is on ext3. The same setup that I had 
with my old installation.

No, that's not it. It always recreates ALL thumbnails when I visit the 
recordings page.

The modification date in the database is older than the cached copies.

For example:

basename: 4740_20071219193500.mpg
lastmodified: 2007-12-19 20:30:00

Recordings directory:
-rw-rw-rw- 1 mythtv mythtv 31K  8. Jan 22:12 

MythWeb cache directory:
-rw-r--r-- 1 apache apache 31K  8. Jan 22:12
