I think this is a major problem.

One of the volunteers on nl: is trying to clean up the unused images, and is wading by 
hand through this bulky list of thousands of entries. But with images linked through 
templates (parameter parsing) never showing up as used, he created a page to list these 
images to prevent them showing up as orphans (anti-weespagina).

Images of which he cant find any usage of are listed for deletion, but chances of 
overlooking an article are great - google isnt always up-to-date.

some examples: (lists all uses 
except Duitsland=Germany, the article mentioned above)
