Lightroom 4.1: xmp embedded in jpegs - format not compatible with exiftool...

I can modify xmp tags in sidecars or DNGs (v1.3-) using exiftool, and Lr4.1 is happy to read them. However if I attempt the same with a jpeg, Lr4.1 resets all settings when reading xmp (unless the jpeg already has Lightroom adjustments saved in the xmp). The format *seems* OK (maybe its not), but something about it Lr4.1 is not liking. Any ideas?

PS - I have reported this problem to Phil Harvey as well...

This has been fixed - not sure when, and not sure by who, but no longer a problem @now (2014-11).
