[Digikam-users] Dragging images from digikam album view to Nautilus removes the original

i'm used to dragging images from digikam album view to thunderbird or to 
web uploads and it never disturbs the original contents of the album.

when i wanted to copy some images to a thumbdrive to show someone, i 
dragged the images there, and after half a dozen images, i noticed they 
were being deleted from the album.  i restored them, but had i not 
noticed, this could have been unfortunate.  i was surprised (to say the 
least) that the drag and drop action from digikam album to nautilus was 
a move rather than a copy. i tend to expect a drag and drop to any 
removable media to be interpreted as a copy.

i do notice when dragging images from one album to another in digikam, 
the app gives you the option to "move" or "copy" which is great.  also, 
when dragging from nautilus to digikam you get that choice.

is there a way to configure that dragging images from albumview to 
nautilus (or some other app) doesn't ever delete the original?

digikam: Version 1.0.0-beta5 Using KDE 4.2.4 (KDE 4.2.4)
nautilus: 2.26.2
ubuntu 9.04
kernel:  2.6.28-18-generic

thanks much!
