Turns out the crash was in dup2(), and most likely due to the fact that I ran digikam after doing

exec 0>&- # close stdin
exec 1>&- # close stdout
exec 2>&- # close stderr

to avoid log pollution. After starting digikam once without that redirection, gst-plugin-scanner apparently completed OK and isn't being run anymore because I can now run digikam *with* the redirection.

The libpgf question still stands, though ;)
