Subject [greenstone-users] Cross Collection "Infection"
I have a problem that has me totally stumped. On our Greenstone server we have 8 image collections and 1 paged-image collection. When building any of the image collections, it affects the paged-image collection in the following way: some, but not all, of the [ex.thumbicon]'s my SearchVList show thumbnail images from the image collection that was built, instead of the correct thumbnail images from the paged-image collection. Even more vexing, when I right-click on one of the "invading" thumbnails and select "View image", the resulting url shows that the thumbnail is in one of the paged-image HASH subdirectories!! Oddly enough, the VList for my browsing classifiers is unaffected.

If I rebuild my paged-image collection, the problem gets fixed. But this is obviously not a long term solution. I don't want to have to rebuild my paged-image collection after every time I build one of my image collections.

This is quite disconcerting and doesn't make any sense to me whatsoever. If I have one collection open in the GLI, why should it have ANY effect on another collection?

I'm thoroughly perplexed. What am I missing?
