I have 1700 photos in my iPhoto libarry.  When I open the app today, I was asked if I wanted to generate high resolution thumbnails.  (I had been asked before but clicked - Ask Later).  Today, with no much happening, I said yes.


It's been almost 4 hours - and the status bar has not even moved 1/2".


I've searched the data base and have seen that it can take some time - especially for poeple with large libraries.  But 1700 photos and 4 hours.  That just does not seem right.


Any ideas?  Just have patience?  Or is there a problem?
