[digiKam-users] Face Tags Not Listed

I don't think that is the problem.  The same face tag works fine for 
earlier pics, but for the later ones it shows as a box around the face 
as expected, but it does not get listed for that person in People tab or 
in Tags > People tab, but earlier pics with that person do show in 
both.  I see all people in the list in the People tab.  I did try your 
suggestion and it made no difference.

I have just added a new person tag in a recent pic and that worked as 
expected, so it seems that something just needs resetting but I have no 
idea what.

I am mystified!
