Yes, the db crashed and was rebuild three times (after all tags disappeared).
I also removed all tags with the new tag manager and read all meta data two
times, but the duplication happended again. Is this "fresh" enough?

I have tagged faces as well, so cleaning the db in production is a drawback. I
therefore used the "write face tags to image" option before I deleted and
rebuild all tags. But I never tried with a completely new db. This will take 4
hours, to be set up but if you think it might help I will try.

Will check this if there is time to upgrade an old laptop to OpenSuse 13.1 - a
prerequisite to install digikam 4.1 again. I will be busy with the downgrade to
digikam 3.5 in production environment till next week.
