7.0-RELEASE: digikam 0.9.3 dumps core on startup

Clean install of 7.0-RELEASE, Xorg, KDE, and digikam from a freshly 
downloaded ports tree.

Starting digikam for the first time gives the dialogue asking for the 
directory to use as the Album root, enter a path then digikam dumps 
core. The trace from the KDE Crash Handler is:

[New Thread 0x2a701100 (LWP 100193)]

Trying to start digikam again results in the same except that it doesn't 
ask for an Album directory.

It doesn't matter whether the directory I choose exists, doesn't exist, 
or exists and contains an existing digikam Album (and therefore an 
existing digikam3.db file). If it is a directory without an existing 
digikam3.db file then one is created, but it is 0 bytes.

The problem appears to be in SQLite.

As I said, this is a completely clean install of 7.0 and the ports so 
there is no dross left around from a previous version of either FreeBSD 
or any ports - the existing digikam album used for testing was from a 

Can anyone shed any light on this please?
