Well, I had the same problem with a cron to chown and chmod all photos shared by the accounts of my family. I solved this by modifying the script launched by the cron to abort when an instance of Shotwell is running. Since this shotwell did not freeze any more. But I think that a chown or a chmod on a n image of the gallery should not make Shotwell freeze.
