           Summary: Opening Albums Has Become Very Slow
           Product: digikam
           Version: 0.9.2
          Platform: Debian testing
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: jgoerzen complete org

Version:           0.9.2 (using KDE KDE 3.5.7)
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages
OS:                Linux

This problem did not exist in 0.9.1.  It began with 0.9.2 and is still present in 0.9.3 beta.

Sometime after upgrading to 0.9.2, digikam got REALLY slow on big albums
-- or tags that selected lots of photos.  top showed kio_digikamalbum
using resources, and stracing it revealed that it was reading every byte
of every file in the album.  It did that before displaying anything
about the album's contents.  That is, it wasn't just rebuilding
thumbnails.  It also is not faster on subsequent access attempts.

My photos are on a local XFS filesystem.  They used to be on a local ext3 filesystem, which exhibited the same problem.
