Good morning Gilles,

thats what I though

yes, I've seen it, probably nice (I don't need it :-) )

here we go:

1) first letter of top parent tag is not saved to IPTC ("Mytesttag" 
is "ytesttag" in IPTC)

2) if a tag-tree is applied the same tags are saved several times:
	if tags are:
	- Mytesttag
		- testtag
			- testtag2
	IPTC keywords will be (also note missing "M"):
	"ytesttag, ytesttag/testtag, ytesttag/testtag/testtag2"
	but should be just "Mytesttag, testtag, testtag2"

3) newly applied IPTC data is not shown in Metadata sidebar immediately:
	- select a jpg in album
	- check a tag in Comments/Tags sidebar
	- click "Apply Changes" (tags appear in album = ok)
	- open Metadata Sidebar: added keywords are not shown
	- select any other picture in album, then again select the previous pic:
	  keywords are shown
	the same is true in similar way when removing a tag

4) photographer identity, credit, copyright are not saved to IPTC when 
using "save as ..." (I've already mentioned this somewhere else)

if these are unknown bugs, shall I file 4 separate bugs or all in one or none?
