[digikam] [Bug 380341] New: Modified sidecar not rescanned


            Bug ID: 380341
           Summary: Modified sidecar not rescanned
           Product: digikam
           Version: 5.4.0
          Platform: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Metadata-Sidecar
          Assignee: [hidden email]
          Reporter: [hidden email]
  Target Milestone: ---

I'm syncing my photo directory between two machines. If I write the metadata to
the image files and enable "Rescan file when files are modified", changes in
the metadata on one machine are automatically shown on the other machine.
However, if I read and write metadata to sidecar files, this doesn't happen. I
need to manually "Reread metadata from image". I would have expected that
digikam notices modifications in both the image file and the sidecar file, but
apparently "Rescan file when files are modified" doesn't apply to sidecar
files, only to image files.

Settings: I've enabled "Read from sidecar files" and "Write to sidecar files
(Write to XMP sidecar only)". Also, I've enabled "Rescan file when files are
modified" and enabled all information to be written to the metadata.
