Exiftool output before removing unappropriate person tag


My wife has changed her name and so, I try to rename all her embedded tags
within digikam.
First, I have tried to rename her tag in the metadata person tag. I was
thinking it was ok.

But after reloading metadata from files, I see that on some files, pictures
have both her old and new person tag.
So I try now to remove the old tag.
Before applying update, I've collected exif metadata with exiftool (exiftool
/home/marc/pictures/img_6654.cr2). File has been attached under before.txt.
In digikam, in one picture which have both the new and old tag, I remove from
the picture her old name.
Then I click to "apply metadata in picture" from menu item. 
After applying tag, I have collected metadata with exiftool. File has been
attached under afterupdate.txt.

Under digikam, My wife is now known has her new name. But If I refresh metadata
(under menu item > reload metadata from file), she still known under the two

I was thinking of a permission issue, but file have rw for every one.
