Ok, importing with the photos already present in the target directory
now works "mostly".
(All of the above mentioned problems are gone)
There is one problem, which makes it quite useless:
At startup KPA reads the new images. They are now present in the DB but
with no tags.
Reading the .kim files should now add the tags. But instead it leaves
the original entries untouched and creates new entries.
If the already present photo has a filename of 'x.jpg' the import
creates 'x-2.jpg'. So in the end I have twice that much photos in the
folder (as seen by KPA), one set with the real photo but no tags, a
second set with a missing photo (grey with the edge snipped off) but the
correct tags.

Ah, ok, this makes things clear. Thanks.
(I would never have thought, that after reading the images (quite fast),
something else could use so much time.)

Been there, done that.

You're welcome. Thanks for the quick fixes !
