Yes, I forgot to compile KIPI this time, I compiled Kimdaba successfully 
after compiling KIPI. Now, the comments I wanted to make:

1) According to http://ktown.kde.org/kimdaba/kipi.html, the Calendar 
Plugin is supposed to work. However, I can't get it to make a calendar 
because I can't put any pictures into it.
	Every time I want to drag and drop a picture into the calendar or to 
select some picture left clicking on the month I get the following 
(when running Kimdaba from command line):
kimdaba: ERROR: ERROR 3: couldn't create slave : Unable to create 
klauncher said: Unknown protocol 'digikamthumbnail'.

2) I have the problem with the time stamp you mentioned, but it wasn't 
solved at least for the existing pictures (I haven't tried with new 
pictures yet). I tried using "Tools - > Maintenance -> Read time info 
from files" but some pictures still have repetead time stamps.

3) Some time ago a patch to read Exif information from files has been 
provided by Marco Caldarelli. I think this is a very useful feature to 
re-read the date info, Is it going to be implemented in the future?

4) KIPI is a great work that provide great features for Kimdaba and 
other KDE applications, and it also seems to be stable.
