error when extracting metadata from ORF files
There's apparently some serious bug in the extraction of meta-data from Olympus RAW files.
E.g. I have the following files:
r--r--r- 1 user user 7,1M May 28 22:58 1.jpeg r--r--r- 1 user user 12M May 28 22:58 1.orf
Both generated by the camera (for the same image).
When I extract ALL metadata from both files, I get the following:
rw-r--r- 1 user user 58k May 28 23:02 1.jpeg.exv rw-r--r- 1 user user 5,6M May 28 23:02 1.orf.exv
As you can see, the dump from the ORF is extremely big, nearly half of the size of ORF itself.
So I guess there's something from with the dump

I think I can confirm that this works now (though I've only tested it with one file):

No idea what the warnings are :-(
