Hi Maik,

I was checking my library for a good example to send you when I noticed 
something. I found all my photos in one folder, and all folders below 
it, were somehow corrupted before I even fed them into DigiKam. My 
backup files & folders outside of the DigiKam folders confirm that. I'm 
sorry I didn't discover that before posting here. But kudos to the 
entire DigiKam team for putting together such an awesome piece of software.
