Recently I noticed that attempting to delete gphotos from my Canon IXUS
55 in gtkam would just hang. After some experimentation, combined with
looking at older sources (which did not hang), I tracked the behaviour
down to the PTPBUG_DELETE_SENDS_EVENT flags in libgphoto2.
I purchased a Canon S3 IS for my parents, and briefly trialled this -
noting the same behaviour.
In both cases removing the PTPBUG_DELETE_SENDS_EVENT flag in
camlibs/ptp2/library.c appeared to fix the issue.
I've attached a patch for this.
I guess this might be worth a pr, but I wondered if other Canon owners
were seeing this?
As the subject says, libgphoto2-2.4.0 is the version I'm patching.
