Bug#463112: eog: Very slow to show an image on a directory with many images

Package: eog
Version: 2.20.4-1
Severity: normal


I have a directory with many images (my photo album with 5000 jpg
images).  Each time I invoke eog anImage.jpg on this directory, I must
wait tens of seconds, because eog reads ALL the images in this

If still is useful to read all the images in a directory before
showing an image, would it be possible to add an option to eog not to
read all these images?
