Bug Description

Binary package hint: gthumb

I am trying to import photos with gthumb (Ubuntu 7.10) from my mobile phone.
The list of image thumbnails is correctly viewed, but I can not import anything
because I have both photos and small GIFs (clipart, frames ecc) that libgphoto
seem not to handle correctly; in gthumb there are no thumbnails for these and
the message "PTP No thumbnail present" appears (even if this is a MTP device)
while loading them.
However, the error for the cliparts inhibits the import for the jpg photos,
that can be imported without problems with gphoto2 and digikam.

In fact I gave a brief look and debug at the source code and in
dlg-photo-importer.c in ctx_error_func is set the global data->error flag, that
ok_clicked_cb causes a return...
So I think that the import procedure should be made more fault-tolerant,
otherwise a single broken (or unsupported) image can inhibit the import of the
whole correct images.

For me, it is also impossible to download photos when video clip files are present in the camera. Looks like it is the same problem.
