Hmm, I'm probably affected by this as well...

But it might help if this was communicated to the responsible person who 
provides the 4.3.0 build in a ppa for ubuntu. A simple measure would be 
to add the digikam packages, rebuilt against 4.3.0, to that repository. 
Not the most desirable, but since digikam and kde are part of one big 
family (in my view anyway), this would not be too strange either...
