I don't quite understand. Do you mean that when multiple tags are selected, the
iconview should display all the images with those tags? Like Gilles mentioned
in comment #13?

Works fine here... but maybe due to the new patch.

I mark this as wish for now.

This is the standard behavior, it has nothing to do with the patch (if I
understood you correct :-))
If you delete a tag in current implementation with a subtag, it will ask if you
want to continue and then ask again if you want to delete the tag.
But sure this is somehow redundant.
