Breakthrough: the Hierarchy classifier triggers the problem! Using
the current custom macros with the Hierarchy classifier results in
no buttons. This definition:

classify Hierarchy -metadata MusicGenre -hfile genre.txt -sort TitleIdx

produces HTML with no image. Here are the title, green navbar, and
"button" navbar HTML fragments:

<td align=right><h2>de</h2></td>

de [<-- between green spacer images]

<a href="/cgi-bin/library?e=p-000-00---0choptest--00-0-0-0prompt-10---4------0-1l--1-en-50---20-about---00031-001-1-0utfZz-8-00&a=d&cl=CL3">de</a>

Rebuilding the collection using the AZCompact, the custom images are
perfect. From collect.cfg:

classify AZCompactList -metadata MusicGenre

Here are the title, green navbar, and "button" navbar HTML fragments:

<td align=right><img src="/gsdl/images/h_genr.gif" width=200

src="/gsdl/images/tgenrgr.gif" width=87 border=0>

<a href="/cgi-bin/library?e=p-000-00---0choptest--00-0-0-0prompt-10---4------0-1l--1-en-50---20-about---00031-001-1-0utfZz-8-00&a=d&cl=CL3" onMouseover="roll('musicgenre',1);" onMouseOut="roll('musicgenre',0);"><img
name="musicgenre" src="/gsdl/images/tgenrof.gif" onLoad="gbutton(this,'/gsdl/images/tgenron.gif');" border=0 alt="Browse by genre" title="Browse by genre"></a>

Any ideas on how the Hierarchy classifer could be tanking the custom
metadata stuff? Maybe some lingering code from a previous version
(2.40a)? Suggestions for what to try next?
