Cache thumbnails shown in element browser
The thumbnails that are shown in the element browser are currently not cached. Each preview of an image is generated on the fly and delivered to the browser (/typo3/thumbs.php?&dummy=1229600609&file=/home/whatever/file.jpg&...).
This results in a high time value for loading the page...
To reduce the time and required system performance, these files shall be cached in typo3temp/thumbnails/* or typo3temp/tmb_*)

Thumbnail files (tmb_*) are flooding the typo3temp folder. Would be better to put them into a separate folder typo3temp/tmb/*
As far I've seen this can easily be done by changing SC_t3lib_thumbs->outdir (and making sure the folder exists).
Btw, isn't this isn't "new" anymore? Works in 4.3 already that way...
