# digikam 5.0.0-1 on arch loops endlessly

```Hi list,

since the upgrade to 5.0.0-1 on arch my digikam does not start anymore.
It keeps looping "searching for new entries"

strace reports it polling but I can't make anything of it:
poll([{fd=3, events=POLLIN|POLLOUT}], 1, -1) = 1 ([{fd=3,
revents=POLLOUT}]) writev(3, [{"+\0\1\0", 4}], 1)          = 4
futex(0xbfd009e0, FUTEX_WAIT_PRIVATE, 1, NULL) = 0
futex(0xa0ffc3c, FUTEX_WAKE_PRIVATE, 1) = 0
poll([{fd=3, events=POLLIN|POLLOUT}], 1, -1) = 1 ([{fd=3,
revents=POLLOUT}]) writev(3,
[{";\3\5\0\20\0\300\1\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\364\0013\1\202\3\n\0\5\0\300\1\20\0\300\1"...,
76}], 1) = 76 poll([{fd=5, events=POLLIN}, {fd=6, events=POLLIN},
{fd=7, events=POLLIN}, {fd=9, events=POLLIN}, {fd=12, events=POLLIN},
{fd=13, events=POLLPRI}, {fd=16, events=POLLIN}, {fd=22,
events=POLLIN}, {fd=27, events=POLLIN}, {fd=30, events=POLLIN}, {fd=67,
events=POLLIN}], 11, 142) = 1 ([{fd=5, revents=POLLIN}]) read(5,
"\1\0\0\0\0\0\0\0", 16)         = 8

I tried deleting digikamrc and starting with a blank databse – it just
keeps polling, while using alot of cpu time – 100% on a core.

How can I fix this?
