           Summary: digikam hangs and eats CPU when changing files
           Product: digikam
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: marcus.hardt iwr fzk de

Version:           0.9.4-beta5 (using 3.5.9, Debian Package 4:3.5.9.dfsg.1-2+b1 (lenny/sid))
Compiler:          Target: i486-linux-gnu
OS:                Linux (i686) release

When changing a file (rating, moving it to another subdirectory) or creating a new album, the process "digikam" utilises 100% CPU and the GUI hangs.

After about 60s normal operation resumes.

Affected Versions:
x 0.9.3 that ships with debian/unstable
x 0.9.4 SVN as of beginning of May

Things trid so far:
o remove digikam3.db (all metadata stored in my images)
o remove $HOME/.kde/share/config/digikamrc
o use a completely different user

=> No effect shown

Removing most of the pictures greatly increased the speed. 

I will investigate further. Any hint?
