Description of problem:
There is a bug in exiv2 0.21.1 that can cause it and the application using it (in my case gthumb) to crash. See http://dev.exiv2.org/issues/769 for details. According to this site, the bug has been fixed in version 0.22.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
If at all possible, please release an updated package for F15. Thanks.
exiv2-0.22 is api/abi incompatible with 0.21.1, but I could see of the fix can be backported.
Oh yeah, seems so,
mind testing this out?
