[Shotwell] Shotwell not updating external raw edits

I am a complete noob attempting to move away from windows so I am at
the bottom of an imposing learning curve.
I have Shotwell 0.7.2 in Ubuntu 10.10.I am impressed by Shotwell and
it successfully does 98% of what I require.
It is the other 2% that is posing me problems
I shoot mostly in Raw and import dng's into shotwell. If I wish for
example to straighten an image and open it
in an external raw editor (I have tried several) Shotwell will not
update the image with the edits. Shutting down
and restarting shotwell makes no difference. The documentation
suggests that the shift key will display the ediited
version (I would have thought the modified image should be displayed
by default and the shift key should show the
original) but it doesn't do anything.
>From my External raw editor I am saving the image back to the original
folder as a jpg but it is not detected by Shotwell.
If I import it into Shotwell it appears as a separate image with no
comments or tags. is this a bug or am I doing something
stupid (as I suspect) ?
If anybody can point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it.
