Description

If you set the "search for updated XMP files at startup" option, Darktable automatically updates the XMP files from the DB. This is in the Windows.
But in Linux Darktable allows me to select an action in the dialog box.

History

It looks like darktable ignores (does not detect) the changes in xmp files, gets history stacks from DB and then in darkroom just overwrites xmp files.

Here's what I see in 2.6 version for Windows: when the option to look for modifications to xmp files on startup is selected, it does nothing on startup, i.e. it reloads the data from the database and eventually overwrite the xmp, without any dialog box to choose what to do. On my Linux box, I see that dialog box where the user can choose between loading the modified xmp or overwrite them.
