It's a kio-slave. It's a process running out of digikam instance to perform 
file operation without frozen digikam GUI. digiKam needed any kioslaves to 
run properly.

If kioslaves can be found to process any tasks like file moving or thumbnails 
generation, this is want mean that your system is badly configured anywhere. 
normally kio-slave must been installed in kde directory like this (mandriva 
2006) :

 [gilles at pc-barn3 ~]$ uname -a
Linux pc-barn3 2.6.12-12mdksmp #1 SMP Fri Sep 9 17:43:23 CEST 2005 i686 
Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.40GHz unknown GNU/Linux
[gilles at pc-barn3 ~]$ locate kio_digikam
