Sounds like it could be the same problem, I.e. the sidecars problem. It is easy to check, tag multiple images and then look in your file browser (sort on file size) to see if any of the sidecars are very small, 39 bytes for me.

I agree that rewriting tags on the affected images one-by-one fixes the sidecars, but if you retag simultaneously all the images you were working on, you may fix the ones initially affected but create the problem for others.
