Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: f-spot

After upgrading from Gutsy to Hardy I am seeing another problem with the
migration of my f-spot database to the newest format. Upon launching the
application it crashes immediately with the following output:

$f-spot --debug
** Running f-spot in Debug Mode **
** Running Mono with --debug   **
Starting new FSpot server

Unhandled Exception: Mono.Data.SqliteClient.SqliteBusyException: The database is locked.

When I move ~/.gnome2/f-spot out of the way f-spot launches just fine.
