No other errors, just the search for new images popup (from the strace output 
it seems kphotoalbum SVN is now indexing video files).

Yes, but without sqldb.

Wasn't there before running kphotoalbum and isn't there afterwards. From the 
strace output, there's no attempt to access a file called "exif-data.db". 
Apart from access to libexiv2 there's no other occurence of "exif" or "exiv" 
on the strace.

> The output of strace could also be helpful.

It's probably too large (767KB bzip2) to send to the mailing list, you want me 
to send it to your email address?

Updated, compiled, installed. Same problem. I'll recompile without sqldb 
support to see if it's related to that. I'll also try rebuilding from the 
SUSE SRPM with sqldb support. But its late now, I'll do it after some
