Description

I've been having problems with digikam crashing on start. I traced it to exiv2 trying to read tags from Matroska video (mkv). I attach the traceback from digikam using libexiv2.so.13 (only the relevant thread) and one I got from running exiv2 inside catchsegv. I'm not a C++ programmer, but I can probably do some more diagnostics, if necessary.

The version I have is Archlinux latest binary package:
yeti:~ $ exiv2 -V
exiv2 0.24 001800 (64 bit build)
