If you have a tag that has only one bookmark and remove the tag from the bookmark and add it back, internally places will create a new tag id. This will mess up any place: uris that have the tag id hardcoded.

This might be related to bug 444601.

Weave works around this issue in bug 503938 by 1) tag a dummy uri 2) untag bookmark 3) retag bookmark 4) untag dummy uri.

a tag should not even have an item id and it should be referenced as place:tag=MYTAG.
All of this bug is just due to our "fancy" implementation.
