Changing dates doesn't seem to move files

Bug Description

Maybe this is intentional to not mess up the file structure.

Shotwell only seems to setup the folders for month/year once when I import the files. When I change its date, the pictures stay in the same folder.

Currently using 0.18.0 - if there's a way to get later builds running on 14.04, I can test to see if the bug is still valid.

Steps to reproduce.

1. Generate an image with no date metadata.
2. Import the image into Shotwell.
3. The image will be stored in "today's" folder.
4. In Shotwell, select the photo and use the "Photo" menu, then "Adjust Date and Time"
5. Set the date for the photo to a date in the past.
6. The photo *should* move to the correct folder - it doesn't.
