During my adventures tweaking the album plugin to read image metadata I've encountered some unexpected behavior. My tweaks populate the ?tag from the xmp:subject tag in the image and the file is written to the transient underlay.

The tag links get created but the corresponding /tag/* page isn't auto created until I run a full --rebuild. Checked in pages appear to get instantly autotagged and their tag pages created.

There is some discussion about autotagging and transients on this site. But I can't quite descipher what is now the expected behaviour with autotagging and transients.

Anyone able to explain if the above scenario is as it should be? (for whatever reason) --kjs
