These days I started a new try to see if something changed after version 
upgrades of digikam.
I started digikam as usual ... and it crashes as usual.
I moved the .db files out of the way and started again ... it asks for the 
place where the pictures are and then behaves normal.
No crash so far.
I can start it again and close and start again. It works.
I changed the phonon-backends from vlc to gstreamer and back but no crash 
and no hanging, it works with both. I decided to use vlc because amarok 
plays sound with it while it does not with gstreamer.

While playing around with digikam it crashes in one situation wich I 
reported then under
Bug#764321: digikam crashes when a video file of type 'Apple QuickTime movie' 
is in an Album
