errors that seem to be the source of xbmc slowing to a crawl when navigating through both movies and tv. does this utility fix this issue?

That error suggests your Textures13.db has references to thumbnails which no longer exist. Not sure why the thumbnails would be missing, but hopefully it doesn't suggest a more serious problem (such as the inability to access or write to the Thumbnails folder).

First things first, make sure you have the latest version of texturecache.py (v0.9.4) - I've just updated it with a new version adding support to more quickly fix your problem (addition of the Xd option).

To Identify those database rows that don't have matching files, run the following command:
Code:
texturecache.py X

and to delete only those rows with no corresponding thumbnail, run - this should stop the errors in XBMC:
Code:
texturecache.py Xd

Now that your texture database is more consistent with the file system, to cache the thumbnails again use the "c" option:
Code:
texturecache.py c movies
texturecache.py c tvshows
