I think the popup is managed by gnome-volume-manager. Try disabling its
digital camera functions, or disabling it completely and see if you
still have problems with gtkam.

On the other hand, the program executed by gnome-volume-manager is
gnome-volume-manager-gthumb which in fact asks for a destination for the
pictures (in lenny).
