[Digikam-users] _Digikam_root_tag_ mess

OK, either I did something stupid, or something went horribly wrong. Today, I installed Ubuntu 11.10 on my production machine and I opted for digiKam 2.1.1 available in the official Ubuntu software repo. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that instead of a flat and neat tag structure, I've got a tree consisting of two _Digikam_root_tag_ branches with all my tags all over the places. For example, I used to have a handful of photos tagged with a single "tokyo" tag. Now I have three "tokyo" tags both in the My Tags branch as well as as both _Digikam_root_tag_ branches. The whole thing looks something like this:

My Tags
|_ _Digikam_root_tag_
     |_ _Digikam_root_tag_ 

The same happened to other tags, too, so my tagging system is a now a complete mess. I spent the entire day trying to fix this to no avail. I could really use some help with this one.
