This message will be displayed while updating metadata in the database
if required (newer file modification date than last *successful*
update). Metadata is EXIF, XMP and thumbnail of an image. If the
progressbar stops, scanning one of these (EXIF, XMP, thumbnail) leads to
an error. Usually this is an external thumbnail creating program,
JPhotoTagger waits for a timeout to retrieve the metadata of the next
image (Edit > Settings > Performance: Maximum time in seconds to wait
before terminating external thumbnail creation program).
To be more precise, I need the log file with all messages, the location
will be displayed when opening "Window > Logfile with all messages".
Detected errors are displayed through "Window > Error Logfile" and near
the progress bar a red error label appears (klick opens the error
logfile and hides the red label until the next error occurs).

If a specific image leads to this error, I can try that on my computer
(need that file).
