[TYPO3-core] RFC: Make image hash names longer to avoid collisions

Type: bugfix, somewhat
Branches: all 4.x if you like

We recently saw some cases of wrong images being displayed. After  
investigating we concluded that the only possible explanation could  
be a name collision, because two different images got the same short  
md5 hash as generated filename.

This possible problem has been discussed back in 2004, btw: http:// 

The attached patch fixes the issue for me, the length of the hash in  
then configurable via TYPO3_CONF_VARS, default stays with 10 chars to  
make sure nothing changes. For trunk we could make this 32, I'd say.  
Names will then have longer md5 names, massively reducing the risk of  
name collisions.
