Hi Martin, sorry for late reply that is going to disappoint you :). This
indeed looks like a bug in the exiv2 library, but before talking to
upstream developers, I'd like you to verify if this happens in the 4.0
trunk as well. If it does, I'd use a binary searching to find out what
image causes it to crash, and then work with this particular image to
see if the bug is really in exiv2. The binary searching works in the
following way: you move half of your images away. If it doesn't crash
anymore, yo move the previously used images away, restore the DB and
move the previously omitted images back and re-iterate. If it crashes,
you move half of the current half images away, and re-iterate.
So, if you manage to find out what image causes the crash, I'd like to
see it, if possible.
