Hm - I can't reproduce this, though I'm using Ubuntu 11.10, Shotwell
trunk (also tried Shotwell 0.11.4) and CR2 images, so a few things are
different. If you'd like to send one of your CRW images to
shotwell at yorba.org then we can try to reproduce this with your image.
If you want to upgrade to Ubuntu 11.10, it would be interesting to see
whether you have the same problem there.
