Bug Description

Binary package hint: f-spot

After upgrading to Maverick from Jaunty, my previously-functioning F-Spot installation stopped working. After some investigation, I have observed the following:

- Starting f-spot from the commandline, I get (among some Gdk-WARNING messages) the following output:

[Info 20:21:05.629] Initializing Mono.Addins
[Warn 20:21:07.287] There's (maybe) something wrong with some of the installed extensions. You can try removing the directory addin-db-000 from ~/.config/f-spot/

- I do as it suggests and delete the named directory then start F-Spot, I get the following output:

[Info 20:25:59.899] Initializing Mono.Addins

  After starting F-Spot, the "Tools" and "Photo -> Export to..." menus are populated.
- I go Edit -> Manage Extensions, unfold the "Tools" section, select "Develop in UFRaw", click the "Enable" button on the right-hand-side, then close the window and restart F-Spot. I get the following output:

[Info 20:29:04.141] Initializing Mono.Addins
[Warn 20:29:06.007] There's (maybe) something wrong with some of the installed extensions. You can try removing the directory addin-db-000 from ~/.config/f-spot/

  When F-Spot opens, the "Tools" and "Photo -> Export to..." menus are empty.
- I open the Manage Extensions dialog as before, disable "Develop in UFRaw" and restart F-Spot. I get the following output:

[Info 20:31:18.593] Initializing Mono.Addins

  ...and the various extension menus are populated once more.

I conclude something about the "Develop in UFRaw" extension in this version of F-Spot is broken.

Out of curiousity, I compared a working "addin-db-001" to a broken one, and found only the following difference:

This problem is still present in F-Spot 0.8.0.

The bug exists for all extensions having a "<Condition id="PhotoSelection" selection="multiple">...</Condition>" section in their addin.xml. Commenting it out and recompoiling fixes the problem (but disables the batch mode, obviously).

You can temporarily fix the bug by disabling and enabling the addin, but it will reappear within the next two restarts.
