Each time I opened an image with Gwenview it took about a 1 minute to show an image.
When I just opened Gwenview without an image it took even longer.
At first I thought this was because of my autofs nfs share that was not connected.
But normally I don't have to wait this long.
I googled and found a topic were they mentioned nepomuk as generating error messages. However I fully disabled nepomuk.
So today when Gwenview (without specifying an image) finally opened I saw a few folder that had a red sign on it.
Right clicking took some time to give me the right-click menu.
THen I did "forget this folder" until there were no such directories anymore.
After that gwenview started very smooth.
I now hope it does not try to add those directories that are on an nfs share(Do note that the directories marked in the list where only a few of the ones in the nfs share).
I hope this helps someone.
I will get back to this topic if it happens again or if this really fixes the issue.
Also I enabled the deletion of the cache after the program exits.
Do note that deletion of the cache alone does not fix this issue.
It seems that gwenview has a list of directories to search for.
