This sounds like a compatibility bug in libghoto2.  You can try to
rebuild digikam and check if this fixes the problem:

	su -
	apt-get build-dep digikam
	apt-get -b source digikam

and install the new .deb.  When this fixes the problem, libgphoto2
broke the library API :(   File a serious bug against libgphoto2.

  To me vi is Zen.  To use vi is to practice zen. Every command is
  a koan. Profound to the user, unintelligible to the uninitiated.
  You discover truth everytime you use it.
