That depends on your configuration. By default, current version will
read from the file name *only* but earlier versions were trying to use
other Exif/IPTC metadata fields as well. This has been changed back to
what KPA 3.0.2 does in 3.1.0-rc2. Unfortunately, users who tried a SVN
version or 3.1.0-rc1 will have this "improved" configuration by default.

Easy workaround is to remove the "[MetadataSyncing]" section from your
~/.kde/share/config/kphotoalbumrc file.

In this case, I believe this is correct behavior as the labels in the
demo database are different than corresponding file names. What would
you like to see here? Clearly you can't have two images with the same
file name in one directory. If I'm missing something, please let me know.
