With current SVN version, as Gilles already said, better support has been 
added (written by Tom Albers I think)
In the box that pops up in KDE 3.5, you will find another entry  "Open and 
download with digikam" which starts digikam or activates a running digikam 
application. This works for USB mass storage devices and should work for 
gphoto cameras as well. Any testing, especially for gphoto cameras, is needed 
and appreciated.
