Hi Vadim,

Shotwell 0.11.6 is now nearly a year old. Try upgrading to Shotwell 0.12.3, the latest version. For information about how to upgrade, see

Good afternoon,

Apologies for bothering this list, but we've committed what we believe to be a fix for this (please see; those of you who have been affected and are comfortable with building applications from their source code, can you try out Shotwell's current trunk and let us know if this is still happening?
