Bug description:
Binary package hint: f-spot

This is f-spot 0.4.3.1 on ubuntu hardy.

When importing photos from my manually maintained, folder-based photo collection -- clicking "Import" and unchecking the "Copy to 'Photos' folder" option (which should remember its last check state) -- pictures with a comma in their name are imported over and over again. 
So everytime I change something in my photo collection and reimport all ~/Bilder, another item is added for every photo with a path containing a comma (","), no matter how many times it's already stored in f-spot's database.

This is not Bug #222136, since other paths contain spaces, too. Those pictures are not duped.
Neither is it that bug about md5-summing files on import, to find duplicates that are created by defining different paths for the same picture, like via symlinks and so on, as all duplicates share the same path (as retrieved from Context Menu » Copy image location).

Examples for duplicates:
~/Bilder/Freunde/Ich/2008/2008-04-20 Japanisches Kirschblütenfest und Eisessen mit Conny, Christine, Carmen, Caro, Japan und Miss
Korea/dscf9288.jpg
~/Bilder/Freunde/Ich/2008/2008-04-20 Japanisches Kirschblütenfest und Eisessen mit Conny, Christine, Carmen, Caro, Japan und Miss
Korea/dscf9288.jpg
~/Bilder/Freunde/Ich/2008/2008-04-20 Japanisches Kirschblütenfest und Eisessen mit Conny, Christine, Carmen, Caro, Japan und Miss
Korea/dscf9288.jpg 
» Three times the same path.

Note: ~/Bilder is a symlink to ~/storage/Bilder, where ~/storage is the mount point of /dev/sda1. (Additional big storage drive for all kinds of documents.)
