I'm experiencing 3 issues with tabcandy at startup
a) stacked groups which don't get touched  in some way are not displayed as in rotated form, instead all previews are ontop of each other
b) stacked groups that have been touched once display all tabs in circular fashion instead of just the first few (imo this actually is better... but it's inconsistent behavior)
c) preview thumbnails are not restored without rendering the pages

I suspect this is due to the large number of tabs (300+ atm) that i'm using.

Reproducible: Always

broken tabcandy view after startup

This screenshot illustrates all 3 issues. Most tabs don't have thumbnails even those that did before restarting firefox. And untouched or touched-once stacks have a broken layout.

Issue A) and B) are covered by bug 619161

iangilman pointed out for issue C) that the slow rendering of previews and the fact that this doesn't happen in the background means i have to leave the panorama view open for several minutes until all previews are rendered, but even if i do that and then restart firefox the previews are not restored from cache.
