Ok. Sorry, this wasn't intended as a patch, but just as a rough
indication, where the problem is and how I (tried to) solve it.
I absolutely wasn't sure, if this is the right thing.

Ah, ok, that may be the reason. (A combination of both)

Hmm dumb question: Where is this "show images" ?
I was used from 3.x and 4.0.[01] that when I click an icon with an
indication of the count of images, I see the images.
E.g. in the attached screenshot below, I would assume, that when I click
"Melk", I get to see the 21 images with that tag.
Did this change ?

Ah, ok, so I'm missing that "show images" thing also here ?!
(see below for some addition)

I would appreciate if someone could fix that. Sometimes that feature
comes handy...

And a new problem (sorry...)
I came up with the idea, that my KPA configuration is broken.
(So e.g. I don't see that "Show images" thing)
So I deleted
Next time, KPA came up (as expected), asking me whether I would like to
- start the demo
- load my own DB
- check the features
On the konsole I got:
Object::connect: No such slot QWidget::slotBrowseForDirecory()
And the [..]-button to select the dir containing the DB is not working.

I entered the path by hand; now KPA behaves like before. But still I
can't see this "Show images" thing.
(I'm curious to learn how big the tomatoes on my eyes have been, so I
didn't find it. I'm still afraid I'm not seeing something obvious.)
