I had tried to move it with the mouse in both the tagfilter page
and the page titled "Comments/Tags" (or however that is in english)
both on the right hand side of my digikam window.

In both these moving with the mouse does not work (using 0.9.0
from the openSuSE playground repository). Shall I file a bugreport ?

It does however work in taglist on the left hand side (however that
is named) of my digikam window where I tried it only now.

In another recent mail in this forum I had read that one of the
advantages of digikam copying the images into it's own directories
is that one can use the OS's tools for dealing with files and

Apparently this involves some caveats.

From amarok I'm used to its ability to identify moved soundfiles.
Don't know how it does it (I'd assume a checksum on some parts of
the soundfile but that's guesswork).

Instead of just removing the entries from the database IMO digikam
should try to find them and thereby reestablish the link between
the tags and the image.

After all assigning tags, comments, scores etc. is a lot work
and just removing it (I'm barely omitting the word outright)
does not seem right.

Or in other words:
Removing a users work MUST NOT be done unless explicitly been
requested by the user. If it is somehow required for the proper
functioning of the software there should still be an explanation
as to what is happening and why and of course there should be
an option to not do it for now thus giving the user the option
to possibly undo whatever he did that made removing such info
a requirement.
