Thanks, it feels really faster now :)

However you also locked out my thumbnail generation script, which I used 
for several skin issues (e.g. here [1]). It isn't allow to download the 
source file anymore from my private server.

As I think, it's not a permanent solution to bar out all search engines, 
I hope this will again be possible, soon. Otherwise it would be nive to 
provide some thumbnail functionality (which seems to be a real challenge 
for redmine [2], but maybe you have an idea).

Kind regards
