Yes, there is an option in digiKam settings under "additional mimetypes" 
- adding "-xcf" says "don't add xcf files". But digiKam won't stay open 
long enough for me to add this option back in, because it crashes on 
every second or third XCF file so only stays open for a few seconds.

I saw that option and thought about it. My ultimate goal with digiKam is 
to be able to right-click the XCF files (after doing some serious 
reorganizing and deleting), to open them from digiKam. To me, this is 
one of the main benefits of using digiKam, being able to open a file by 
browsing to the folder. AFAIK sidecar files even of the "extra" type 
aren't shown in the UI, so this would completely disable the option to 
open an XCF file using digiKam.

Anyway, I guess I should file a bug report on this crashing thing.
