To clarify:
* I'm using KPhotoAlbum 4.1.1-r1 under gentoo and KPhotoAlbum 4.1.1-3+b1
   under Debian.
* I'm not using any stacking feature but expect KPhotoAlbum to
   automatically detect several formats of the same picture by looking at
   the basename of the file.

This works fine (except once), with .pef and .jpg files.  I now did some 
counting and I have 3344 raws on disk but only 3077 in index.xml.  This 
means the solution I have to implement is to add the missing raws to 
index.xml, by duplicating the existing .jpg entry and changing the file 

Let's hope I don't hit create duplicates in the view by doing it.
