f-spot shows random photos at startup

Bug Description

Binary package hint: f-spot

At startup f-spot shows my photos (and that's ok) but not always the same (or, for example, it doesn't place itself to the last photos or to the first). For example, at times, it shows at startup my photos of year 2003 while other times it shows my photos of year 2008. It's not related to the last photo I have selected before having closed f-spot last time.

Tested this with f-spot in Hardy Heron x86_64.

- open f-spot (obviously I suppose that you have many photos so f-spot cannot show them all in one page)
- select a photo (it's better that you select a photo that is not in the first f-spot "page")
- close f-spot
- re-open f-spot
- if you are "lucky" you will see that f-spot doesn't open the first photo page or the last photo page in which there was the photo you previously selected, but it places itself in one of the next photo pages
- if you aren't lucky re-try always selecting a different photo

Often it's not necessary to select any photos: if you open f-spot, don't select anything, close it and re-open the app you will see the issue.
