Temporary workaround:

In the "Albums" section of "Configure digiKam...", select "Embedded preview load full image size", this will cause RAW images to be rotated correctly, but will slow down browsing through albums significantly.

It appears that within exifRotate in loadsavethread.cpp, if an image is RAW it is not rotated.  For actual images converted with dcraw, this is the correct behavior.

For embedded previews extracted via kdcraw -e, this is not the correct behavior - the embedded preview is an unrotated JPEG that contains an EXIF orientation tag.

The reason the Panasonic DMC-LX1 unconverted-to-DNG raw images behaved correctly was not that they were missing EXIF data, but that they were missing embedded previews.  The Pentax PEFs and LX1 converted-to-DNG images both had embedded previews.
