 I'm suggesting that the svn digikam be run as a different user, 
which would allow for a different digikam root (pointing to the 
copy, so the OPs original remain 'safe').

I don't think its possible to have two instances on the same user 
session. The KDE4 digikam is said to be more flexible in roots 
(my understanding) but I don't know if it will address 
'multiple-instance' issue.  I haven't compiled it yet.
