Hi Franck,
Once again thanks for your interest/will to help developing KPA.
I've got a few comments and a few change request I'd like you to incorporate 
in a new patch.

* Whats is this part of the patch about:

* The annotation dialog (when used for annotating images) was changed, so when 
I tag persons, I can start typing esp (and Jesper will match), still it does 
not choose Jesper, when I then press enter. Are you trying to make this work 
only for the searching usage of this dialog (remember the same dialog is used 
for annotating images)

* The patch to BrowserWidget.cpp failed, please make me a new patch against 
the devel branch. I'm truly sorry about that extra work. I've updated the web 
now to be more specific about where the branches are.

* In Manager.cpp, please remove hzellers getting an environment variable all 

* Instead of offering the user to choose the format, how about offering him 
whether "When loading thumbnails prefer: [fast loading|less harddisk used]. 
That will make the choice more obvious to the user.

* The label of the check box in the Settings dialog doesn't really explain it 
well - or at least I did not understand what it was about.

* There is a bit of debug code in there (a include of iostream, and a 
std::cout in a comment, please remove that.

* Finally, please make me two patches, one for each feature, that makes it so 
much easier for me to read them.

For your convenience, attached, please find a patch for the Settings dialog 
with your changes.

Having trouble finding a given image in your collection containing
thousands of images?
