I retried and the bug is not corrected. The code patch from 0.2.0 can still be applied.

@gnome, please rethink the importance of keeping this package in tree and if positive, consider taking over media-libs/libexif-gtk and bump it (0.4.0 has gtk3 support). media-gfx/gtkam is the only revdep of it, and has not received any commit in 4 years.
