As I understand this, there is a bug in libexiv2 because it does not check the size, but that's a minor problem, it is digikam's responsibility to check the size of the preview. Even if libexiv2 is fixed, digikam still needs to make sure that if the image is a JPEG, the preview may not be larger than 64k.

DMetadata does not know the image format, so the limit needs to be passed to the setImagePreview() method. This method is called from DImgInterface, which knows the file format.

For other formats, PNG, TIFF, the size is not limited?
