digikam and EXIF


I am new to this list, digikam, and digital photography.
I experience few, perhaps related, problems.

1. The metadata in exif and makernote are lost after transforming a photo. (Tested on rotating and resizing.)

2. After starting digikam, my terminal gets cluttered with warning such as this

Warning: Size 5291 of Exif.Nikon3.0x0091 exceeds \
  4096 bytes limit. Not decoded.

 Q: How can I cause digikam to copy the relevant metadata
    into the the transformed photo?
    Or should I use external tool (exiftools)?
 Q: Should I worry because of the warnings I get?
    Even if not  - how to avoid them?

I use a Nikon D300.
Photos are recorded as the largets possible tiffs.

  digikam       : 0.9.4
  kde           : 3.5.10
  libtiff4      : 3.8.2-11
