Thanks Miika and Jan,

OK, erm, false alarm, this is embarrassing: my build was not linked to 
libkdcraw at all. I suppose cmake must had told me the lib wasn't found, 
but I didn't see it. I assumed (incorrectly) that kphotoalbum would 
refuse to build if libkdcraw wasn't there.

So anyway, "sudo apt-get install libkdcraw-dev", clean cmake, make, and 
voila, it works again! My apologies for the noise :$ .

I really do miss the ability to recreate thumbnails though. After my 
initial linkage blunder, some of the thumbnails in my display are from 
the tiny 160x120 thumbnails, and I'd like to change them back to 
something nicer :/

Thanks again,
