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
