All photos are shown in slideshow, instead of selected ones

Bug Description

Binary package hint: f-spot

When I select one photo in f-spot, and press F5 to start a slideshow, the photo I selected is displayed, as I would expect.

However, when I select 2 or more photos and press F5, the slideshow starts from my first ever photo, and goes through ALL of my photos.

I would expect it to show a slideshow of only the photos I selected.

Note that the same thing happens if I choose View:Slideshow from the menu instead of pressing F5.

There is a patch with a partial fix upstream - with it, the slideshow starts with the first photo in the selection, but still cycles through all photos.
