I think there still exists a problem with this, but not for every picture, but 
for every time you launch Digikam. After I used Digikam for a while and 
downloaded some pictures and run ipcs -m I have these new entries:
0x00000000 8585218    klaus     600        262144     0
0x00000000 1736707    klaus     666        461280     0
I started Digikam again and after viewing some pics and closing it there is 
this new entry after the others:
0x00000000 9895941    klaus     600        262144     0
and once more starting Digikam viewing pictures and closing again there is one 
more entry in ipcs -m:
0x00000000 10878982   klaus     600        262144     0
Not sure if this is related I have unfortunately not so much clue about this 
kind of things. :(

But I also realized a problem today with downloaded pictures that get 
autorotated. The preview picture in the albums is correct. Do I open the 
autorotated picture I only see the first few lines, the rest is just 
gray. "Open with..." kuickshow, gimp, showFoto shows the pictures correct. 
After I close Digikam and start it again also in Digikam the pictures are 
shown correct. Seems that there is somewhere a cache that is not refreshed 
after the autorotate?


take care!
