Hello,
I've the following reproducable behavior:

A set of images, in a directory. all of them have ÈXIF information of date and 
time. I added them to Kimdaba und the programs reads out the date und time 
informstion correctly. I set the Locations information and everything is 
fine. Now I quit and save (the behavior is the same without quitting and 
saving).

The image entry in the index.xml looks like that:

  <image monthFrom="12" dayFrom="24" hourFrom="20" yearTo="0" monthTo="0" 
md5sum="5a5ebd824fd9fc296d4e0370ac58320f" minuteFrom="5" file="Weihnachten 
2004/DSCN0043.JPG" label="DSCN0043" angle="0" dayTo="0" secondFrom="5" 
yearFrom="2004" description="" >
   <options>
    <option name="Locations" >
     <value value="Idstein" />
    </option>
   </options>
  </image>

Now I reopen the Kimdaba and add person information to a single image. After 
ok the date information is gone. Of course it's still in the EXIF info but it 
is not displayed anymore and also not in the index.xml. I didn't touched the 
date information, but in the edit property windows it was displayed 
correctly.

The image entry:

  <image monthFrom="0" dayFrom="0" hourFrom="20" yearTo="0" monthTo="0" 
md5sum="5a5ebd824fd9fc296d4e0370ac58320f" minuteFrom="5" file="Weihnachten 
2004/DSCN0043.JPG" label="DSCN0043" angle="0" dayTo="0" secondFrom="5" 
yearFrom="0" description="" >
   <options>
    <option name="Locations" >
     <value value="Idstein" />
    </option>
    <option name="Persons" >
     <value value="Florian" />
     <value value="Doris" />
     <value value="Andrea" />
    </option>
   </options>
  </image>


Kimdaba version is 2.0.

I've just experienced that this problem also occurs if I don't change 
anything, just open the property dialog and click and Ok.

It's definitve reproducable but not with all images

I have experienced this problem for the first time now, all other images work 
fine.

Please don't tell anyone I use Kimdaba, I don't like to be sued...  :-(
