Bug Description

Binary package hint: f-spot

After the update from Lucid to Maverick (which otherwise ran perfectly) I get a crash of F-Spot (f-spot 0.8.0-1 from the official repositories).

When starting F-Spot no thumbnails are shown in the main window, just something like a table where the thumbnails should be.

When double clicking one of the non-existing thumbnails, there is a short moment when you can see the big picture but after that F-Spot crashes.

Debug output attached.
