In exif_entry.c in the function exif_entry_get_value,
the case for EXIF_TAG_COPYRIGHT is broken. I can't
figure out what format the author expected the entry to
be in, so while I see what he's trying to do, I'm not
sure of the method, so I can't fix it. I guess not
many cameras even have this tag, so the bug hasn't been
noticed. But on my Kodak, which has the tag as an
empty value, it causes a crash.

I commented the code out and now everything's fine. I
suggest removing that code for now unless the original
author is around to fix it.

    Assigning to Lutz, I can't see any problem

    This should cause test-tree to crash. ( I shrunk this down and haven't tested it, but the blank copyright is there)

    Should be fixed in CVS. Thanks for the report.
