I have no answer/solution, but perhaps it helps. My PC becomes very busy when
dropping many photos in Digikam or updating tags (I write the tags to the
image file, not database only, so date modified changes). In my case it is
minidlna, that scans the directories on change and imports the images (or
reimports, in case of tags updated). It makes DK close to freezing as well. I
always thought minidlna to be the culprit; if I disable it for a while DK will
freeze for a shorter while.
Could there be a backgroundprocess in your case that gives your system a hard
time while importing photos?
