[digiKam-users] FaceTags not showing

Can anyone help with this?  Looking at it some more there are loads of 
pictures affected.

I also noticed a difference in how I select in the left panel. If I 
select a person in the People tab I get some of them, if I select that 
same person in Tags > People I get many more.

I am suspecting a mismatch between exif data and the database. Is there 
a way to test this?
