Bug Description

Binary package hint: f-spot

I started f-spot importing around 9,000 of my photos. Let's say all my photos are stored in subdirectories under /media/shared/photos called 2008, 2009, 2010 etc.

I left it going overnight and F-spot ground to a halt just over two thirds through and quit.

I opened F-spot up the next morning and noticed that it had got up to "2006". I chose to import the photos directory again, and it did the remainder of the subdirectories.

So all the photos are in now, but the problem is that F-spot has done something weird with the directory structure when I view the "Folders" tab. So, reflecting the two import sessions, I have two separate directory trees like this:

/media/shared/photos/...(year subdirectories from 2002 to 2006)
/media/shared/photos/...(year subdirectories from 2006 to 2010)

Rather than one combined

/media/shared/photos/...(year subdirectories from 2002 to 2010)

Hopefully the attached screenshot will help explain what I mean.

Is this expected behaviour, or should it be a bit more intelligent than this and combine the source directories into a unified file structure?
