> > suspends signal delivery during bulk reads and writes for
> > SIGCHLD which lets read(2) succeed and the signal
> > gets delivered to digikam after the read(2) call.
> I've closed the bug I opened about this
> Oh, the segfault problem was solved ages ago - cause was compiling
> SQLite3 with FTS options.
