What is also very bad in this case:
When shutting down, the kernel is not able to umount /home, / etc, because 
digiKam is still running. This leads to a bad filesystem on reboot with a lot 
of errors that luckily could be fixed all the time.

It is no general problem, my system runs fine, it always appears when I switch 
the collection in digiKam_KDE3.
