it seems the filename setting got lost along the way, and only the variable
filenames were working. This fixes the problem.

I did enter the values in Artwork and Artwork Thumbnail settings. The thing
I changed was the program-version. Initially I entered front.jpg i both
fileds in version 5.1.1 (I think). Then I resized the images, entered
front_std.jpg and front_thm.jpg, and at the same time i installed the latest
nigthly version. This did not work, and when I changed the values back to
front.jpg again it still didn't work.

The --d_artwork confirms this: As far as I can see the artwork-scan ignores
the values entered in Artwork / Thumbnail settings and only looks for the
default picture names.

I'm running the official 5.1.3-version.
