[ic] Image tag

Hi All,

I've been playing with the latest "Image" UserTag and hit a problem 
which is either a bug or a limitation of the design - I'm not sure which 
because I can't make out the code.

If I do:

   [image src="image.jpg" makesize="100x100"]

it correctly creates a directory called "100x100" under the image root 
and generates the thumbnail image with the same name as the original.

If I then change the original image and call the tag again, the 
thumbnail is not refreshed. But if I delete the thumbnail it regenerates 
it correctly.

Is this right or is there something wrong with my setup?

If this is correct then is there any way of forcing the thumbnail to be 
overwritten in certain circumstances (e.g. by overloading the "force" 

I thought it might be automated by comparing the datestamps on the 
original and generated images, but I suppose this would take a lot more 
time than simply checking that the generated file already exists.
