I don't have any raw files so that's not a problem.  I'll move the .db
files away and try again.

No, that still dies.

I suppose the other thing to try is to get rid of my digikam
configuration files....

No, still dies after removing *everything* I could find in my home
directory related to Digikam.  However if I run as another user with a
symbolic link to my pictures directory it works OK.
