Well, if I understand you correctly, the patch I provided does not
suppress this feature. It's just aimed at not permitting to configure
a category to contain itself, which I can't find useful.

In fact, I obviously also want to keep being able to search my photos
by super-categories.  For example, some persons are grouped under a
super-category which is their family name. I often use this feature
when I want to send some photos of a whole family (say children,
parents, pets :)) to one of the family.

If you have time to test my patch, you should see it keeps this
feature completely unchanged, as I understand it.

A new version is attached, I improved the last one a little bit so as
the listbox does not scroll to the top on each click.

See you
