Verified that path wanted was not setup for NFS. I had digikam-0.7.4-r2 & digikamimageplugins-0.7.4-r2 installed then upgraded

is this crash still reproducible using digikam 0.9.2-beta3?

This does not mean it is invalid by itself, but
without further information (gdb backtrace
and check with current 0.9.2 version) 
it is not possible to find the root of the problem.

Please feel free to re-open if there is any
new information.
