Yes, it's not limited to Bibble. That's a title stated by the reporter,
but the bug encompasses the class of bugs where EXIF info is not saved
when the EXIF info in the source image is broken (missing required
tags). Various cameras/applications can make such images with faulty EXIF
Raphael: Btw, even if we accept broken EXIF data, the EXIF data we write
back should be fixed and valid.

First, do a check with GIMP trunk and see if the issue has been fixed. If
not, please report your image (the original source image) at the same bug
too. We'll take a look at it and if it's a different bug, then we'll file
another one for it. Please mark the bug as reopened too when you attach
