Limited picture size (previews in Konqueror, kview)?

Hello all,

I'm running Trinity (latest stable) on openSuSE 12.3. In Konqueror (file 
management). It seems I can get previews for "smaller" pictures (up to at 
least  4896x3264 pixels), but not for  larger ones (7216x5412).

Gimp loads these,  kview does not, neither can Gwenview. However, if I load 
the pictures in the Ristretto Image Viewer (that obviously creates thumbnails 
for it's own use), then refresh in Konqueror, I get the previews.

So I guess there is some limit with the "engine" used for picture viewers in 
Trinity?  I must check, but I think it worked OK with the KDE 3 from 
openSuSE, maybe I'm wrong.

Note that I _did _ check the settings in configure-konqueror - Previews & 
Meta-Data and set the maximum file size at 100MB, to test (the files are 
around 5 MB jpg), it did not change anything,
