Importing zero-sized or corrupted files hangs darktable
I've had some corruption occur on my computer that caused some pictures to reduce to zero bytes. When I tried importing a directory that contained some of these zero-sized files the Skull image did come up on a few in lighttable, but I was unable to do anything with the program. When I opened up darktable again, I had the same problem when it tried to cache the file.
I put in a zero-size check before importing in my local copy just in case it happens again. thanks

I guess just checking for empty files isn't enough. I get the same behavior (it seems to be a deadlock somewhere in mipmap cache) when I import corrupted files.
