[Digikam-users] certain Gimp xcf files cause showFoto to crash

Is there a way to tell digiKam/showFoto to ignore all xcf images?

Sometimes when opening an image (eg a png or a tiff or a jpeg) with
showFoto, showFoto will open the image and then crash. The reason
turns out to be that there is a Gimp xcf file in the same folder and
that makes showFoto crash. The same thing happens with digiKam if
digiKam is trying to add the images in that folder to its database.


Just because it's a standard, doesn't mean it's right.
