I am working on a prototype install of digiKam on Windows to show to my
company. My album collection is located in a folder on the Desktop. I placed
another folder of images on the Desktop and opened DK's "Add Folders" tool
under the Import menu. I navigated to the folder I wanted imported, but DK by
default also selected the parent (in this case C:\Users\library\Desktop). As
seen in the attachment, the Directory field says '"Desktop" "target folder"',
indicating that both will be imported. In addition, if I click other folders
also on the Desktop, DK selects them all, instead of just the most recent
click. If I want to deselect some I can ctrl-click them, but there's no way to
deselect "Desktop" unless I navigate into a subfolder and then back out. Then,
when I click my target folder, it is the only one that is selected.

Importing both caused a full system crash, because Desktop contains the target
folder, and both are being copied into a folder that also lives on the desktop.
DigiKam started trying to copy my archive into the new subfolder within the
archive, over and over, creating recursive subdirectories. I did a hard reboot
and used robocopy (http://superuser.com/a/1048242) to delete the new
subdirectory. Now I know how to avoid this problem, but it could easily happen
to others.

I have a feeling the problem may be specific to the Windows version of DK.

Thanks for your work on digiKam!
