[Digikam-users] rotate picture and adjust exif entry

I usually rotate all my pictures according to exif data, which works 
fine. Under settings I have ticked "set exif orientation to normal after 
rotate" (translated from german, so real english name might differ) 
under Metadata --> Rotation.
Unfortunately, digikam doesn't do it. If I have an image in Portrait 
mode, the exif data reads "rotated left" (or right, if I took the shot 
the other way round), and so digikam displays the image sideways and I 
have to adjust the exif orientation to normal by hand.
I think I first observed this problem under digikam 2.6, still there 
under 2.8.

Am I missing another place to tick for automatic adjustment or do I file 
a bug report?
