AFAIK yes, digikam continues to work normally... Just the face
detection do not progress further. I can even start another face
detection session, seems to work ok...

I have yet another a bit annoying "feature": sometimes the "scanning
faces" dialog goes to background, or just the digikam main window is
brought into foreground... Anyway I do not like such foreground window
switching.
