I still think that it would be better rename files in the application. I'm not 
talking about moving them from one dir to another, just renaming the file. 
The reason is that digicams produce filenames like "DSCN0003.jpg". I just 
copy all images to kimdaba base dir and go through them and set Location, 
Keywords, ... it would be great if I can change the filename to something 
suitable in this step too.

It wasn't me. I said it for the first time in this posting.

I've just tried it again, it doesn't work.
