   |    Would your images happen to have some non us letters in them, and
   |    would you lately have happend to upgrade to a new Linux version,
   |    which now encode file names in UTF?
   | Nope.  I am using a modern distribution (SUSE 9.1), but I don't create
   | any filenames with non-ASCII characters.

   Does it also happen for the demo app?

Yes, it does.  What I did was:

# cd /opt/kde3/share/apps/kimdaba/demo/
# rm -f img00*

and then run the demo.  When I chose Display Images Not On Disk, I was
unable to delete the 9 images found.
