[Digikam-users] Tagging deletes image-clueless

You could completely rule out a (userland) software bug (either in digikam
or one of its libraries) by running digikam with strace and seeing if there
are any calls to unlink/unlinkat.

Try something like

strace -o /tmp/output.log -f /usr/bin/digikam

then try to reproduce the bug. After you close digikam, check that
/tmp/output.log file and look for any calls that reference the file to try
to figure out what happened (there should be at least some for opening the
file and writing the metadata). If anything deleted the file explicitly
there should be a call to "unlink" or "unlinkat".  If it's not there, then
is either a kernel error or a hardware problem.
