Many thanks, so I can read the whole message without having to
buy a 25000 pixels width screen :-)

Very interesting. So this should show my problem is outside digiKam
comparison code.
Anyway I suspect an insane mixture of ISO encoding and Unicode.
Metadata stored in images files by digiKam (at least the ones with
keywords, xmp.dc.description and xmp.digikam.tagslist) seems to be
UTF-8 encoded. It's probably the same in the digikam.db, and my
keybord inputs are ISO Latin !

Investigation in progress... :)

Thanks for all,
