I import a lot of photos from Photoshop and Aperture with no problems 
importing the metadata into digiKam (it is rather annoying sometimes as it 
creates tag trees all over the show, and I have to integrate/delete them 

So I wonder why you can't read your F-spot metadata. Can you give it a try and 
run exiv2 on the original images from F-spot?
$ exiv2 -pi *.jpg (or whatever format your images have)

If you see IPTC data then digiKam will see them too. Otherwise I'd guess that 
there is a problem with the metadata of the images.
