> Digikam notices the missing partition. It either displays the images as unavailable

Hmmm, that's an interesting idea. When images are not available, nothing happens. The images that are unavailable can be given a special look ( maybe a red border around the thumb? ), and the user can simply delete the images from the database in exactly the same way as you can delete an existing image. The only difference is that the image itself was already gone.

This solution never needs to bother the user on startup, and cleaning up the database will be very intuitive: Just delete the images that are marked 'unavailable'. 

Digikam could also offer a special tab that contains the images that could not be found on startup.

How about this?
