[Digikam-users] Import of many photos

Hi list,

I'm trying to import several thousands of photos into digikam, a collection 
recovered fro a harddisk that was damaged.

I tried to just import the cr2 folder, which contains several folders of 1000 
images each, but the dialog to select a target album never becomes usable, it 
is just a square.  My process window in KDE just shows digikam using 25% CPU 
constantly, probably it just fully takes up a core of the 4 in the quadcore 
system. Maybe it is retrieving thumbnails...

Anyone have an idea for how to import images in one go? My next attempt is to 
import them folder by folder, but that will require a lot of work,
