syncitems and tags

I've written an LJ client that uses the XMLRPC interface to download a backup copy of my journal. I'm using the syncitems function and downloading only items that are new or changed since the last timestamp.

If I go back and edit a post text, then I download the new copy with syncitems. However, if I just edit the entry tags, then the updated post is not downloaded with syncitems.

Are tag changes supposed to trigger an update via syncitems? If not, how can I tell whether old posts have had their tags changed?
