Marcin, I think Gilles put the finger on the incompatibility:
F-spot uses XMP to store metadata (as you show above: no IPTC data), whereas 
digikam 0.9 uses IPTC for it. Therefore there's is no direct metadata transfer 
However the kde version of digikam 0.10b3 is fully compatible with XMP. So, 
importing F-spot images into digikam 0.10b3 should be straight.
