But no crash any more. OTOH the filename as description below the photos
is missing, despite the fact I had the mapping dialog opened and closed
again. (This worked as expected, when I changed back to exiv2-0.15. It
seems the exception from 0.12 somehow "kills" this)

Do you need a downscaled version of one of the photos ?

It will be great relief to me to know, that not only our build system at
work is badly broken in some respects.... ;-)

Thanks for the prompt reply. The touch did the trick mostly.
(This did a new configure, which funnily now failed because of missing
dcraw (or some such) I configured without this)

No, not until now. Seems I have to give it a try.
Does this really mean, that busy maintainers work with IRC running to
look for questions ? Isn't that a source of permanent distraction ?
(Ok, mails like these are probably too... ;-)
