--- Comment #10 from Gilles Caulier <caulier.gilles at gmail.com> ---
The problem explained here is relevant of inter-operability. 

typically, if digiKam tags image, it store tags path in a dedicated XMP
namespace, not IPTC, due to severe limitation of IPTC. XMP is so far
better/powerfull than IPTC.

If image is tagged originally by IrFanView, IPTC tags are parsed in import
workflow, as no XMP data are found. As import is done an more tagging is done
in digiKam, XMP data are added.

In next process, to tags again with IrFanView only more data as add to IPTC,
not XMP, and as XMP data already exist, IPTC are ignored...
