Bug Description

Binary package hint: f-spot

F-spot starts up quite normally, GUI and all. When double-clicking any picture, it swiftly turns belly up and dies.

When running it as 'f-spot --debug --synch', and waiting half a minute for the output to calm down. Trying to open any picture provokes the following:
[Debug 18:58:49.065] open uri = file:///home/msiebuhr/Photos/2009/11/22/forside.jpg
[Debug 18:58:49.161] open uri = file:///home/msiebuhr/Photos/2009/11/22/forside.jpg
error checking orientation
The program 'f-spot' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)'.
  (Details: serial 13506 error_code 1 request_code 153 minor_code 19)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

Mandatory stuff:
Description: Ubuntu 9.10
Release: 9.10
f-spot:
  Installed: 0.6.1.5-0ubuntu1
The machine is freshly upgraded from 9.04 and I have tried to nuke the settings in .config to no avail. If anybody can tell me how to wrap the thing in a debugger, I'd be happy to give it a spin.

OK. Tried removing every mono-, cli- and gac-package from the system and re--install f-spot & tomboy from there. Also removed my f-spot database and all other relevant files, I could find.

When running f-spot the very first time, the window shows up and then promptly crashes:

I then run f-spot a second time, to see if it repeats. It doesn't, as f-spot starts up just fine. BUT when I click the "add photos", it crashes:
