Dear listmembers,
playing with 0.9.0-beta2 showed one (possible ...) bug for me and one more 
issue for the wish-list.
My casio exilim creates a file called "DDISCVRY.DPS" in it's picture 
directory. I do not know, what it is for, but it causes issues:
- when simply trying to delete the file while accessing the camera digikam 
tends to crash. If I can delete successfully (happens sometimes), digikam 
still tends to be unstable afterwards. I remember having a similar issue 
recently with defective jpeg pictures, however maybe I am on the wrong path 
and these problems are not related to each other.
May this be an issue with digikam or should I expect this to be a problem of 
my computer / my kde - version? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. 
If anyone wants such a file "DDISCVRY.DPS" for testing purposes, I can supply 
- when I want to select files on the camera, I can select all or I can select 
a certain (but not arbitrary ...) amount of pictures through the mouse-select 
dialogue (pressing down left mouse button and select a certain amount of 
This leads me into trouble when trying to select i. e. ten lines with 4 
pictures each and only three out of four of the eleventh line. Other programs 
allow to press the shift key and then select file for file by left mouse 
click, enlarging the number of selected files easily. This does not work with 
digikam - at least not on my system.

Any comment is highly appreciated, you should always assume an user error :-),
thank you very much in advance,
take care
