Description dns 2013-01-13 12:02:07 UTC
Hi I just noticed, that when draging and dropping files out of digiKam, the default behaviour is to MOVE files out (like in the Nauilus)... I don't think it's a good usability decision, as I just have removed from my library hundreds of pictures tagged with the same tag... and have no mena to put them back into right folders/events... 

I think digiKam shall ALWASY do COPY... and MOVE be possible only in a very intentional way.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. select pictures
2. drag and drop them to desktop
3. will be removed from original locations
