Wow - that would be great. So I reread metadata from all images and write
metadata to all images using tag manager to clean up? 

Will your fixes apply 
-to tag manager tools only, or only
-to explicit calls of "read metadata" / "write metadata" for files and albums,
-or to both ?
How about the inital reading of a collection? Same code?

> _Digikam_root_tag_ on the same level

This happended only once with the root tag, when I read metadata from three
files at once, two with inconsistent IPTC and XMP into a messed up tree. Maybe
a display error.

Duplication of other tags on the same level is very common - see eg my latest
attachment. I copied 5 files of the testcase to my big collection and used tag
manager to read metadata of all images to find out if the same bugs apply. They
