    When I go to Photos (in 2.1) or Albums (1.5), I see, in addition to the folder structure that I set up on my SD card, a whole list of gif files that I don't want to see.

    Moreover I can't figure out where they are living. According to the Photos app, they are on root level, but I can't see them! (I would like to see them so I could delete them).

    They each have names like: "b5469cb0-6ab8-4409-b2ef-caf8bb49bd81" and the have a type image/gif.

    Less than 1K each, seem to be pixelated little icons and bits of web graphics. (?)

    I hate them. Help me find and eliminate them.
    Anyone else have this problem?

    I have the feeling it started when I trialed some 3d party browser.

    (I know about the .nomedia deal, but that won't help here, as far as I know because it on the root level, and I don't want to .nomedia my whole SD card..) If I don't solve this I will reformat the SD card...
