Great tip. I changed the process slightly so I created the new album in Digikam
without the dot, moved the photos, closed Digikam, used Dolphin to change the
sub-album name to include the dot, reopened Digikam and it was gone. I then
tested by closing Digikam, removing the dot with Dolphin and reopening Digikam.
The new sub-album showed up again and the comments and tags were preserved.
Exactly what I wanted. Thanks.
