Version: 1.5.0 (using KDE 4.5.1)

to that folder for the program to thumbnail them.
Digikam eats all memory resources, rendering the system unusable.
Digikam should manage the available memory efficiently, not causing everything
else to hang, and choke on the data itself (as I said above, the process takes
The same happens in current svn
