Sorry, I made a mistake with the urls; please refer to the corrected 
urls for downloading the files:

I encountered a strange problem  developing a Nikon raw file with
digikam 3.0.0-beta2 which did not occur under digikam 2.9:

Under digikam 3.0.0-beta2 (latest version from git) a pattern of a faint
rectangular lattice of fine lines occurs over the entire .JPG that was
produced from the .NEF file. This does not happen when using digikam
2.9, nor do I see this pattern when developing the raw file by
rawtherapee or darktable.

You may view the results by downloading the original NEF and the JPGs
produced by digikam 2.9 and digikam 3.0.0-beta2 from the following website:

raw-file: www.robert-zeller.org/transfer/DSC0607.NEF
JPG digikam 2.9 : www.robert-zeller.org/transfer/DSC0607_v2-digikam_2.9.JPG
JPG digikam 3.0.0-beta2: www.robert-zeller.org/transfer/DSC0607_v1-digikam_3.0_beta.JPG

Since the web-page is not open for directory search you have to specify
the full urls when using wget for download.
Caution: the files are huge since they were taken with a NIKON D800
which has a 36 Mpix sensor.

I used the same settings in digikam 2.9 and 3.0.0 when developing the raw.
I am wondering what the reason may be for this unacceptable result in
