Hello:

I've just realized that my .thumbnails folder occupies 3.3 Gbyte
space. I wanted to empty it by:
rm .thumbnails/large/*

D=.thumbnails/large
rm -rf $D
mkdir $D

I just delete the whole directory. It will be made again the next time
thumbnails are created.
rm -rf ~/.thumbnails.

I guess a more robust solution would be to have cron run a script that deletes
old thumbnails once the size is over some maximum? Just haven't had a need
for that.
