unable to open image in running instance
I like to open images in darktable from within digikam or occasionally from the command line.
When darktable isn't running this works for the first image (albeit only if i temorarily move by dt-config directory and start with a completely fresh one, otherwise dt freezes before displaying the image - i suppose this is due to some inconsistencies in my config folder).
If I try to open another image while darktable is still running I get the following message on the command line and the attempt to open the image fails (started with darktable -d all):
