F-Spot is putting my pictures on 1969 dec 31


Since I switched to 32 bit fedora 17 when I load photos from my Canon camera using F-Spot - they end up in a folder for 1969 Dec 31.

When I look at the jpeg info on the photos it shows the correct 2012 Dec dates.

When I look in the camera it has the date and time correct.

Not that it helps solve your problem, but this is the behavior you would get for some internal date/time subroutine returning -1 (assumedly to indicate an error). Unix epoch time began at 0 (zero) at midnight, Jan 1st, 1970. So -1 for a timestamp would put you at the Dec 31, 1969 date you are seeing.

What is the date your system returns if you simply type "date" at the command line? That could be wrong (unlikely), or it could just be a bug in F-Spot.
