Unfortunately this way will fail to match (for instance) "bomb.jpg".
If you want to go this route, you need to do something like this:
(untested!)

/^galleries.*([^t]humb|[^h]umb|[^u]mb|[^m]b|[^b])\.jpg$/   #bleah

Ah, brilliant! But it doesn't quite work. It fails to match
"thumb_foo.jpg", which probably should match here. A simple
modification should fix it, tho:

/^galleries\/((?!thumb\.jpg$).)+\.jpg$/

There. That's a pretty nice pure regexp.
