Please try 0.9.0-beta2. Much has changed, and no bugs will be fixed in the 0.8 
series any more.
If you still get crashes, please file a bug report at bugs.kde.org, then 
chances are high that your problem will not be forgotten on the mailinglist.
Provide a suitable backtrace (compile with --enable-debug) so that we can see 
from where the crash comes.
It seems very unusual to me that a camera provides .pnm files - can you open 
them with other programs, what does the "file" utility say?

Btw: When digikam downloads a file, the file's metadata will be read and the 
file is added to the database, so it needs to know its type.
And, a crash is always understandable but never acceptable ;-)
