cvs-version of f-spot crashes

Hello all!

I am trying to compile f-spot from cvs (i want to test the xmp stuff
which as i have understood is only available in CVS) although I am not
much of a hacker. I have read the intructions here:

i checkout and build with this little script:

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous anoncvs gnome org:/cvs/gnome co -P f-spot
cd f-spot/
make clean
./ --prefix=${HOME}/temp/f-spot-unstable
make all

with no problems, and then test run it with:

cd src
./f-spot --uninstalled --basedir /tmp  --photodir /tmp

This yields a crash after some windows have opened:

An unhandled exception was
thrown: /home/pontus/temp/f-spot-unstable/lib/f-spot/

I should mention that I have tried this for the last week a couple of
times in case the cvs-repo was unstable for some days.

Maybe more knowledge to do this is necessary than what i posess. 
Is there something i need to install or is there anything obvious that I
do wrong ?

should i file a bug ?

best regards Pontus
