Being a long time linux user and developer I am well aware of the misconception
regarding fragmentation in linux fs, but thanks anyway for the sum up :)

I suppose then, that the checked infrastructure kde4 now provides has a lot to
do with this behaviour. Note that digikam 0.9.x did not show this problem and I
used it with the same collection which gave me the slow startup now.

Regarding the actually scan, digikam does respect the 'do not scan at startup'
option. With this option enabled it just scans it twice. Its quite easy to see
with a strace'd run. 

So this may really be a problem with the kde4 KDirWatch doing a stat, where the
kde3 did not ( very oversimplified put :) )
