This appears to be a duplicate of Bug #175191. Upstream is still working on an official fix, but in the meantime I am packaging versions of F-Spot which are patched to not alter timestamps.

If you're interested, you may get these packages from my PPA here: https://launchpad.net/~smcgrath23/+archive/f-spot
