[KPhotoAlbum] KPhotoAlbum Crashes when viewing thumbnails

If I knew what image was craching KPA, I could send it to you. However, I have no idea which one(s) of the 7,000 is/are guilty, nor any idea how to find out. Someone more clever than I might be able to tell from the crash reports or the ValGrind created files that I have submitted, but I certainly have no idea how to do so.

I've had the same: some broken images crash something (in kde libraries) that makes KPA crash. And it's sooooo frustrating.

Maybe you could post here an image that crash KPA and maybe then...   Something..
