[digiKam-users] FaceTags not showing

OK I have tried and not solved it.  I have uploaded P1.jpg and P4.jpg as 
examples, P4 shows face tags correctly in DK5.6 and DK7, P1 only 
displays correctly in DK5.6  Looking at the metadata both have tags 
defined, but P4 has XMP data for Regions, P1 does not.

In DK5.6 I have tried Tools > Maintenance > Sync Metadata and Database, 
Direction From database to metadata, but still the Region info is not there.

I have shared the 2 files on Dropbox.

Any ideas what to do to fix this?
