Hierarchical tags during import ignored
Import images with 'import' - 'folder', select 'add metadata during import' and put e.g. ort|oesterreich|wien in the Tags-field: the hierarchical tag is not imported but simply ignored!

Ok, I found out that when importing pictures the first time the hierarchical tags get assigned, only when "reimporting" pictures a second time (which I often do because I'm migrating 15k+ pictures to darktable and experiment with different methods of preserving the IPTC-tags) darktable ignores the hierarchical tags during import.
And Tobias, after a "reimport" when the tags do not get assigned to the pictures, I do see these tages in the gui-tag of the preferences.
Does this make sense?
