--- Comment #5 from Nicolas Fischer <nf at nfec.de> ---
I am facing the same issue, running openSuSE Tumbleweed with Kernel 3.12 and
KDE 4.11.3.
The face recognition requires a lot of memory in general and there is no switch
or so to limit it.

As the guys before me wrote Digicam will eat up all available memory even swap.
I upgraded my system today to 16GB RAM plus 120GB SSD swap. When working with
face recognition for 5000 pictures is it just a matter of memory bandwith until
Digikam allocated more than 40GB of memory.

Read, write and delete to RAM continues but no progress in operation can be
detected. For me it stay in status "Applying face changes" for hours when I
made changes to 100-200 pictures.
