Are there any good Ubuntu/Debian/Linux-based tools for identifying corrupted jpeg images in a collection of tens of thousands? I know that there are a few in there, but I can't bring myself to view them all manually, even at the thumbnail level.

It might not be perfect, but you could use feh -p and examine the error messages generated.

From info feh ... feh --unloadables -r /opt/images Weed out (list) all the unloadable images in /opt/images and below. –  Peter.O Apr 2 '11 at 11:22
    
Actually, it's feh --unloadable -r /opt/images or feh -ur /opt/images. –  Scott Severance Apr 2 '11 at 22:50
