Issue #987 Corrupt 'gimp-metadata' parasite. Parsing XMP data failed.

XMP metadata saved by GIMP 2.8.x or earlier can have duplicate tags
making the XMP data invalid. There's not much we can do without a
whole lot of processing and complicated code and even then no
guarantee we would catch everything.

Instead let's just try to improve the message to the user so they
will be more likely to understand what's going on.
