I have this exact same problem, same platform (Debian testing), same version of Digikam (0.8.2-rc1). Started some time the most recent apt-get update, about May 31, 2006. The funny thing is, the problem did not manifest right away. The chain of events went something like this: (1) After the update, everything was working fine, exif properties displaying. (2) I plugged in my brand new camera, a Panasonic DMC-FZ7, into the USB port for the first time, although I had previously imported a few pictures from the new camera using an external card reader the day before. I found that the camera is not fully supported by Digikam, which sees it as a Panasonic DMC-FZ20 (alternate id), and cannot import pictures. The files are, however, accessible through Konqueror/file system (under /media/sdb1), so I pointed Digikam there and imported the pictures. (3) I realized the camera date/time was off by 12 hours, so I retrieved jhead and used it to batch modify the exif datetime to the correct time, then re-imported the pictures into Digikam. (4) Very shortly thereafter, exif properties (for all my pictures) no longer displayed, as described by the original reporter.
Perhaps it needs to be submitted in the appropriate Debian bug reporting system.
