Description Markus 2014-04-02 14:07:23 UTC
I have ~5gb folder of .NEF pictures and while I watch those files in album mode, digikam sometimes while opening pictures crashes with signal: EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION. It doesn't seem to relate to what picture I'm looking in that folder, it just happens randomly.
I ran digikam with normal user and after that as admin and it happened both times. 
Digikam uses JPG preview images.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open digikam 
2. Open album
3. Click through pictures
4. Crash
Actual Results:  
Crash screen. 

Expected Results:  
Open picture.

With digiKam 5.0.0 Windows installer, this problem is not reproducible.
I close this file now. Don't hesitate to re-open if necessary.
