Digikam loses some photos during import
Last modified: 2008-07-30 16:12:04 EDT
Description of problem:
After the import completes some of the photos are missing and others have the
wrong filename. This problem is known upstream and fixed in SVN. See linked KDE bug.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I've seen it several times but only just manged to capture proof of it occuring.
When I imported a folder of 114 photos I only got 100 in the destination
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Import 100+ photos
2. Some of them get a red X in the download box
3. Compare input and output directories
Some photos are missing. Some have the content of a photo with a different name.
All the original photos imported correctly
Known and fixed upstream in SVN.
Given the nastiness of this bug it would be great if Fedora could provide a new

For now I'll just rebuild the beta4 from koji for myself on F9.
This should be urgent - it's a DATALOSS bug.
As the author of the upstream patch, I'd applied it locally but then got hit by
it again when I upgraded to Fedora 9.
For reference, the upstream bug is http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=158377
Personally, I had been hoping for a new upstream releaase soonish, but that may
be too far off.
Marcin, what's your opinion?

Patch to F-8 and F-9 spec files in Fedora CVS

by putting the patch into the Fedora system.
As I look at the digiKam's release plan version 0.9.4 should be available very
soon. I like Rex would also like to wait till new release.
Maybe we could do like this, if 0.9.4 won't appear in Sunday (6th July) I will
