I sure since when i open these images with GIMP, it can read the comment (it 
shows up in 'Info' window). Digikam can't see the comment for some images.
More than this, i edited two photos taken today with GIMP and added comment to 
both. Digikam reads the comment in firs image but can't read it in second. 
Opening both with GIMP shows me that comment is there in both.

I use GIMP 2.2.8

First, digikam shows an image comment in yellow popup when i point the image 
with the cursor. Second, there is "Properties" in right-click menu or in 
"Image" menu for highlighted thumbnail.
