Hi digiKam users and developers,

I am having problems with starting digiKam on my Mac after upgrading to macOS Big Sur. Since searches do not show any reports of this problem so far, I wonder, if this is a known issue or if I have to look for problems specific to my machine or setup, rather not related to this upgrade?

Background info:
- macOS 11.0.1
- digiKam 7.1
No visible activity on screen after starting the app. In the activity monitor of macOS there is one digikam process running on one core with close to 100% cpu time, the error counter ist staidly increasing, the open files show just libraries and the database, but no open image files,  and after a rather looooong period, the macOS error message occurs, digiKam was terminated unexpectedly.

A reinstall does not change anything at all.

Is anybody out there having the same issues after upgrading to Big Sur? Or are there any hints on were to start digging for specific issues on my machine?
