Perhaps you're using that option "automatically jump to thumbnails when
search returns less than X items". When I start KPA, select "Search" and
search for Tokens: !T, KPA shows screen similar to the "homepage", but
only with images not tagged with Tokens:T. Then I can select option
"Exif info" (the one just above "Show thumbnails"), then choose to find
images taken by Panasonic LX-2. It returns list of images that I'm
pretty much sure is correct (ie. from my camera and Tokens: !T). Does
this work for you?

Yep, I can reproduce this. It's a bug, please report it to KDE's bugzilla.
