That may the issue, I'll try that again, but I think I did try to be
very quick. Plus, Digikam (which uses libgphoto2) allows you to scan
the camera, but this scan invariably fails, no matter if I use PTP mode,
or access the USB Image volume path. Occasionally, I can navigate to 
the DCIM directory, but when I try to display the images there it fails.
They are definitely there, the camera displays them just fine.
