I'm not assuming all your systems are broken ;-)
But if someone is telling me digiKam needs an hour to startup, then something 
must be really messed up.

There is nothing to improve directly, it is all related to sqlite.
It might be that sqlite doesn't like reiserFS that much, especially when the 
database is bigger.

This is one of the reasons we might think of a different database backend, 
like amarok did.
sqlite is really not so good for performance relevant operations.
