I ran exactly in the same issue today, and I had to use "strace digikam" to find the problem of rights.
I do agree setting the rights to 666 is not the right thing to do, but digikam should trap the problem and display a message to user saying something like "I don't have the rights on this file : fix your setup".

My current setup
/home/david => me
/home/nancy => my wife
/home/commun => owned by david.commun

I've got a cron that periodically updates the owner (but not the rights) to david.commun so that both of us can access the files.

/home/commun/photo/digikam3.db was :
$> ls -al digikam3.db
-rw-r--r--   1 david commun 402432 jan 26 20:20 digikam3.db

When using digikam on wy wife's account to create a new album, here what happened :
- digikam successfully created the new dir
- the new dir briefly showed up in the left "album" panel
- then as there is no rights on .db, digikam made the album disappear without any explanation

Hope it can be "fixed".

Keep the good work !
