I'm using debian unstable and I've had a similar issue for quite some time 
(about 3 months IIRC) but on my side I never managed to get digikam past the 
splash screen saying "Loading database...".

Today I tried to start it many times since I read your bug report and I found 
a CPU usage using 100% of *both* cores while I was starting digikam. Thus, I 
discovered there was another process using CPU : FAM !

I killed the hanged up digikam and stopped FAM via /etc/init.d/fam stop and 
digikam works like a charm since then.

I don't know if it's the source of your bug, but try to disable it and it may 
work... Would be a fam bug then ?
