    Yes

    Can across this not long ago. We solved this with a bash script run via cron.

    We used wv

    However it was buggy if you do not know all the fonts etc that will be in the file. We were converting the word documents to PDF then using imagemagick to convert the pdf into a jpg thumbnail also.
