I don't know anymore, if we had such a problem with 0.7.1 but with 0.8 there 
isn't such bug.

Trust me ;) there is no risk to use 0.8 even though it is marked as unstable. 
That doesn't mean the software is unstable, but gentoo hasn't done enough 
tests. I use 0.8 (from svn trunk) since we started developing it (for about 9 
month, or is it even a year now) and I never lost any image or had a 
corrupted database.

But that doesn't mean, you don't have to update your images! There are still 
user mistakes, faulty hard disks,.... Backup your images, the 
digikam3.db/digikam.db and digikamrc files, whatever version you use.
