Need help on Decapod's Thumbnail browser

Hi Boyan,

The issue is that you are initializing the subcomponent and then  
rendering the page. When the renderer redraws the page, the handlers  
that had been put on the thumbnails by the reorderer get removed.

A better way to do this is to use a renderer decorator for the  
reorderer. You can see the documentation here:

Hope this helps,
