So I've been having a go at debugging this.  Namely, I fired up digikam
with -f -e open to track every open syscall (you can't reread metadata
unless you open up some images).  I then ran the Album -> Reread
metadata action.  According to the console output one metadata task is
created and one job finishes.  However, other than a thread opening some
shared libraries, there are zero other calls to open.  This implies that
something may be awry with the reread metadata action.

Regards, Freddie.
