[Digikam-users] Tags not shown in thumbnail view

Does no-one have any idea? I still don't understand how the pictures 
obviously do contain IPTC-keywords, but those keywords are still not 
shown in thumbnails and are not searchable either. And why images with a 
rating do not show this behaviour. As I already said, "re-read metadata 
from image" does not help.
Is this a problem with some settings which I missed? Or is this a bug?
