[Lucid] F-Spot NullReference Error while transferring photos from Kodak camera

Status in “f-spot” package in Ubuntu: New

Bug description:
Binary package hint: f-spot

F-Spot testing found an unhandled exception while copying images from my digital camera...

The camera is a Kodak EasyShare 875.  On connecting the camera to my netbook, fspot opened the dialog for importing photos.  I added a tag "Kodak Pix" and started the import.

After a short while (shortly into copying the 35 pictures over,) I got an error popup that says:

Unspecified Error
Error GeneralError: LibGPhoto2.GPhotoException: Unspecified error
  at LibGPhoto2.Error.CheckError (ErrorCode error) [0x00000]
  at LibGPhoto2.Camera.GetFile (System.String folder, System.String name, CameraFileType type, LibGPhoto2.CameraFile camera_file, LibGPhoto2.Context context) [0x00000]

  at FSpot.CameraFileSelectionDialog.Download () [0x00000]

Repeated attempts at clicking Retry or Skip did nothing.  Cancel canceled the operation and opened a new error box that said the following:

F-Spot Encountered a Fatal Error
System.NullReferenceException: Object
