Kubuntu 6.06, KDE 3.5.5, digiKam 0.8.2-RC1.

I dropped ACL. The solution I'm using instead i changing the umask of the 
system (002 I think). Creating a group for all who need to share the album, 
set this group as owner of the album and then setting the group-permission to 
rw for the album. Any newly created sub-albums will then inherit the same 

This works (almost) importing pictures from a camera everything is fine. But 
when I import from a directory or cd-rom write-permission is "removed" 
(actually, it just inherit the permissions of the original file).

There is a thread on the kubuntu mailing-list starting on october 1st with 
more details.
