[Digikam-users] White balance

I am playing with raw conversion and white balance settings in the fresh svn 
version of digikam, and I have a question related to this:

After converting a raw to an adjustable image, I am trying to set the white 
balance of the picture. Lets say, I set it to 6500K. Calculation done, the 
picture is almost perfect. However it needs a slight adjustment with the white 
balance. If I re-invoke the white balance settings I will find that it says: 
Temperature: 4750.
However, I know it is 6500!

I suppose this is not a bug. I guess digikam doesn't know the color temperature 
of a picture by itself. It needs this information either from the camera or from 
the user, which is normal. But I think digikam does not get this information 
from the camera, or - after setting it to a value - it does not store it 
somewhere in a database.

Am I right?
