On last update on the Image thumbnail issue :

It appears that some thumbnail urls work :

while some dont:

The one that does is a file that was uploaded a long time ago by MDAWaffe.

The one that does not has an URL that leads to a Codex Page. I beleive
the rewrite rules are messed up in some fashion. The one kind soul at
#mediawiki who responded knows not how to fix this, and I couldn't
provide any details about the setup, so it calls for Matt's swiss
knife, I guess.
