Thou art rude but I forgive thee because thou hast healed my digikam (see below)

This was the key to the problem. When I upgraded from Fedora 9 
to 10, the ~/.kde directory didn't get copied across to my new home dir 
so there was no digikamrc file in ~/.kde/share/config/
Luckily I still have a backup copy of my old Fedora 9 home directory, so I 
just copied the digikamrc file across from there, and then when I started 
digikam it worked fine, copying the old database to the new format.

Many thanks for your help.
