           Summary: Digikam doesn't read EXIF if XMP sidecar file exists
           Product: digikam
           Version: 2.0.0
          Platform: openSUSE RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Metadata
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: salsergey at gmail.com

Version:           2.0.0 (using KDE 4.6.2) 
OS:                Linux


I have turned on reading metadata from XMP files and writing XMP sidecar files.
It seems that in this case Digikam reads EXIF from the image only if there is
no XPM sidecar file. As soon as such file corresponding to the image is created
Digikam prefers to read metadata from it and doesn't read EXIF from original
image. At least there is almost no EXIF information in the sidebar. When I
delete XMP file or turn off reading metadata from XMP files all EXIF is shown

I apologize if this behaviour is already known.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Turn on reading metadata from XMP sidecar file and create corresponding file.

OS: Linux (i686) release
Compiler: gcc
