I didn't notice similar behaviour on my computer.

It may be usefull to detail your computer specifications (OS, RAM, graphic  
card (or chipset), graphic driver used ....).

It would be usefull to copy paste the Digikam component info, to detail  
how do you install Digikam (did you built yourself, does it come from a  
repository, official ? in Testing phase ? Personnal repository ?), and to  
launch Digikam from a terminal and copy paste what happens when launching.
