Warning : binary compatibility is not preserved between 0.16 and 0.17.
if you don't recompile libkexiv2 used by digiKam and kipi-plugins you
will see strange side effect... like crash (:=)))

To be sure, please recompile libkexiv2 and exiv2 with full debug info,
and send me gdb trace to hack

Here i currently work with Exiv2 from trunk and digiKam 0.10.0 and
stability is the hell... but it's the only way to test and stabilize
