Adding Gps locations to a raw file from a sony a6300 corrupts some data on the raw file. Possibly the White-balance information.
This happens only when you enable writing metadata to raw files.

Test to reproduce:
1)Go here: http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/sony_a6300_review/sample_images/
2) Download http://img.photographyblog.com/reviews/sony_a6300/sample_images/sony_a6300_01.arw
As a note: If you try to download the raw directly over http://img.photographyblog.com/reviews/sony_a6300/sample_images/sony_a6300_01.arw you will get a 404 error. You have to download it over http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/sony_a6300_review/sample_images/ (referrer check most likely).

3)Open it in the DigiKam image editor. The colors are fine.
4)Add gps info with the geolocation tool to the file and save it.
5)Open it again in the image editor and you will see that the colors are wrong now.

This bug was confirmed by another User in the digikam IRC.
