It still uses "/" in XMP in the "tag list" field but not in IPTC. I'd
really like hierarchy to be consisten among apps. F-spot and geeqie
detect tag but hierarchy is lost.

What about the sync problem? Tags are didn't match XMP info until I
clicked sync with db in album menu. Could it be because I'm running
digikam in a gnome desktop? Should I take care about syncing db every
time I run digikam? It seems strange.
