You could enable the latter and try to change everything until it fits your 
needs. Then you save the import utility's settings or put them into the 
default digikam settings. You could also try to disable colour management and 
adjust the whitebalance etc. manually just to make sure that it's not a 
general issue but e.g. related to the colour management only. This would help 
tracking down the bug.

There was a bug in the rc1 that prevented the batch queue manager to use the 
default settings and always enable automatic brightness etc. so make sure you 
try with current svn or the next release if you use the bqm.
