you are right; apparently it got broken in most recent version of 
gamin... It is even considered a blocking bug for the next release of 
FC4 (if I am reading correctly). I guess, it makes me proud for finding 
such important thing ;-/ However, I am wondering, what is everybody else 
using that you guys don't have this problem. I installed digikam on FC3 
and ran into a problem that you quickly reproduced; now I am on FC4 and 
immediately ran into another show-stopping bug! And I run as 
"off-the-shelf" system as I can...
