I had similar problem to original one: after metadata sync from images to DB I
was getting a lot of tags with all non-ascii characters converted to "?" in
addition to correct ones. exiftool helped me to trace this to the IPTC tags,
hence here I am.

I tried to follow up on where exactly the characters are replaced by "?" and it
seems to be KExiv2::setIptcKeywords , where it uses toLatin1() which works
exactly this way. Some changes around to change it to Utf8 made it pass my test
case. When I made digikam use the modified lib it wrote the tags correctly, but
they were still displayed garbled in the tags panel.
