I'm not sure if I understand the question correctly... in both cases the IPTC
metadata has a DigikamTag and a IrfanviewTag keyword. No tags were removed by
either program. (Only in the case of the caption / title info was the previous
entry replaced with a new one.) So both images should have two tags, one called
"DigikamTag" and one called "IrfanviewTag". And indeed, both images do have
keywords "DigikamTag" and "IrfanviewTag" -- and Digikam sees this, which you
can see by looking at the "IPTC" tab of the Metadata pane. However, only for
one of the pictures does Digikam recognize both keywords as tags (so that they
show up under the thumbnail and in the list of defined tags). If Digikam wrote
a tag first (and IrfanView added another afterward), then Digikam only
recognizes the original tag -- it doesn't treat irfanView's tag/keyword as an
actual tag.

The same is true in the case of the captions and titles: the IPTC metadata is
there, but Digikam does not recognize the metadata as a caption or a title if
Digikam wrote some metadata first, and then IrfanView wrote some. (Again, this
is *after* reloading the metadata in Digikam.) The difference between this
situation and that of tagging is simply that there's only one "caption" or
"title" field, so rather than adding another keyword,  I replaced the caption /
title created with the first program with a caption / title created by the
second program.
