The issue you mention could very well be the screensaver. I guess the screensaver creates some kind of picture playlist, which are strange beasts in XBMC.
I'll investigate, but i don't know if i can do much against it...
Turning off the fanart screen saver solved the issue for me, the playlist does not get loaded with tons of tbn files anymore.

This usually happens when you're using password protected network shares as sources. The problem here is, that the username / password aren't transfered to the remote (for security reasons), and when the remote tries to dive into the source it get rejected because of missing auth credentials (kinda scizophrenic...)
The good news is that theres a workaroud for this. You'll have to move the auth details from your sources.xml to another file.
If added a short howto to XBMC Commanders webpage:
...near the bottom.
Viewing pictures isn't perfect though.
The app will only download & show pictures < 3MB, because anything bigger quickly causes memory trouble.
Thanks for the information, your were right about the cause of the issue and setting up a passwords.xml file solved the issue for me.
Just one note on your site, you might wanna change the references from password.xml to passwords.xml (unless both naming schemes work), as all references I found online were for a file named passwords.xml.
Now, although I can see all the pictures folders and even the picture filename (and even loads the picture thumbnails), when clicking on a picture I see the loading screen but then only get a black screen. I checked the picture size and they are under 3MB in size. Also, are these pictures cached on the iPad or gotten each time I want to view them, as I only have a 16gb iPad, space would run out quick if it were to cache all my pictures heh.
